There's just something about a beer after a hard workout. It always goes down smooth and seems to be a great fit.
Now, you don't have to worry about all those petty commenters who tell you that you're hurting yourself! Apparently, beer's bubbles, sugars, and cold-filtered marketing using hot girls all work together to help you re-hydrate fast. How fast? FASTER THAN WATER AND THAT'S FAST!
The study, from Spain, had 25 students running on a treadmill in a room with a temperature of 104 degrees. They ran to the point of exhaustion and then measured their hydration levels and found that the ones drinking beer to re-hydrate were able to regain their lost water faster and were more quickly quenched of their thirst. Also, they showed significant improvement in their Flip-Cup team.
