It turns out that drinking 1-2 beers with <5% alcohol when you're dehydrated actually helps more than drinking water. There's a scientific study somewhere that demonstrated it in the last year or two. The key is the amount of alcohol though, so the high-octane stuff that many of us usually drink doesn't work for this.


Interesting! But yeah, I don't drink much beer under 5%. I don't mind Newcastle though; that's under 5%, isn't it?

Man, beer is really good for everything :)

I just alternate a sip of beer with a sip of water.

two guys at the VVR (on the JMT) asked me to please deliver a few Guinness (in cans) to their buddies at the other end of the lake and I said sure . . . but somehow, I forgot their names by the time I got over there and just ended up hearing the echo of my own name . . . had to drink the beers (after a long dunk in bear creek) to put them out of their misery.

There's more than one way to cool off with a Bud!

I agree! Fortunately Bud, Miller, Coors, PBR, etc. don't really qualify as beer so there is no harm done when pouring it out.

You just need perspective. Force down some Nattie Ice or Milwaukee's Best and then hate on PBR. :twisted: Betcha won't be whining about how "bad" Bud is then.

Not beer, but I once polished off most of a bottle of wine a friend had brought up to the summit of Moosilauke on a nighttime July 4th hike. :)

One of my greatest regrets back east is not having realized my "drinking a Sam Adams atop Mt. Sam Adams" hike. Someday, though...s not having realized my "drinking a Sam Adams atop Mt. Sam Adams" hike. Someday, though...

LMAO! I don't really care how much it costs btw. Quality has its price. I wouldn't drive a Kia either just because it's cheap.

Nothing to do with image. I don't drink it for the same reason I don't buy wine in $5 gallons. I don't like it. I drink beer for the taste, and most American lagers taste like crap.
