Beer is Better



We sailors knew it all along.

It's part of our tradition.

But now some Spanish scientists have proved it.

Beer is better for you after a workout than water.

Cheers.

Corroborative evidence is just pouring in on this.

I have done extensive research on the best restorative beverage after a grueling day of boat maintenance and can confirm the research group's findings.

I read the linked article and wondered about the group of 25 students that were divided so half drank the beer and half the water. (To show the slight improvement.) Was the slight improvement in the half student?

If half the improvement was in the half student that drank half a pint of beer, how many pints of beer should I drink after sailing to experience 100% improvement?

Verification word: bitur

It's a good thing I read your post. Having just come off the river after a vigorous paddle in a kayak I was about to reach for a glass of water, but stopped my self just in time!

Thank you Tillerman, a very timely public service announcement.

Some beers are better for you before a workout. For example, Heineken, Coronas, Millers, Molsons, Mooseheads, Becks! Even Coors! But I learned during my Laser days, never to buy Schlitz because, if you capsized, those puppies would sink. In those days, Olympias were test-proven to be the most buoyant! But any two of the above, and you will see how easy it is to forego a workout!

Baydog said...

Oly's are made with Tumwater, whatever that is. Schlitz will give you the ............

We used to give Narragansetts the nickname "Nasty Gaskets". We still drank a bunch of them on the Vineyard. Along with Olympias, Red, White, and Blues, PBR's and any other cheap beers we could get for less than $10 a case.

Baydog said...

And Doc, how could you include Coronas with Heineken, Beck's, Molson's and Mooseheads? I'm sorry, but Corona is not nearly in the same class. I opine.

Doc Häagen-Dazs said...

Baydog, I picked up on Coronas during a ten-day stay in Cancún more than a decade ago. But since then, I have learned those long-necked bottles stand you in good stead if you ever get in a bar fight over who's drinking the best beers.

Don't forget our very favourite flavour of beer:

FREE!

After extensive research the Tuesday night Laser fleet has discovered that Pilsner Urquell has the optimal recuperative properties.

It has a heavier body but slightly less alcohol than typical American-style lagers with an almost ale-like fruitiness in the malt body and is more strongly hopped than most pilsner beers.

I remember flying out of Prague at the crack of dawn after my kid brother's wedding. Czech Air counts beer -- Pilsner Urquell, in particular -- as a soft drink, so it's free. The guy across the aisle from us had it along with his breakfast. Apparently the Czechs feel beer is an appropriate breakfast beverage.

Here in New Mexico, soccer fans are flocking to the bars in the early mornings to catch the World Cup soccer matches. The Two Fools Tavern, in particular, apparently has a pretty good breakfast spread, including beer.

And the great Aussie brews (except those from New South Wales and South Australia and probably Western Australia)

I know that after any vigorous activity, I always feel better after a few beers.
