    I've seen beer tents at the finish line of a few of the marathons I've done. Had myself a tall Shiner Bock after San Antonio race, but as a staple post workout drink?

    Doing Warrior run this Sunday. not sure if there will be beer tent, but I will be having a beer after the race, I feel it is a moral imperative for a run of this nature.

    Not sure post exercise beer will gain any traction with reasonable people.

    I quit and it's been a month. To be honest, training progress is more significant without beer. It shows on body recovery and am able to train more.

    My .02 cents.

    I work out almost every single afternoon or early evening. These workouts include kettlebells, cycling, running, or nordic skiing. My wife and I have happy hour every single night, too. So sometime between 5 and 7 at night I'll drink 2 beers (or sometimes wine, but we have a keg fridge and I almost always lean towards beer).

    I find that this is excellent for my mental health and seems to have had no impact on my physical health. My recovery is great and my bodyfat remains right around 5 to 6 percent.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Drink whiskey and ditch a beer.

    Seriously beer is 110 pts in GI scale and there are not many articles that are above that. (pure sugar is 100)

    It's not like I follow GI like madman but 110 is way too much, IMO

    Saxon drank beer, Dave Whitley drinks beer. Some do well with beer some do well with out beer.

    I think what you are focusing on isn't one of the variables that is going to change a whole lot

    As I have aged abit (like good whiskie) I have determined more clearly in my mind where the line is drawn when it comes to beer or whiskie drinking. Most men or women go through the binge drinking cycle through their 20s and into their 30s. Binge drinking for me was 8-10 or more beers not counting whiskie and tequila shots at closing time. This was a 4-5 night a week habit while in the military - and doing my own PT routine 5 times a week. Push ups/pull ups 3-4 miles run and some weight training. As a result I was burning both ends of the candle, and feeling pretty crappy. Around age 35 I figured it out that this was not sustainable. I cut back on my drinking to one night on the weekend to 4-6 beers. Today 4 beers is too much for me. If I feel the effects of achohol the next day then I crossed the line. My line is 1-2 beers with maybe 1-2 shots of my favorite whiskie La Phroig or Highland Park. I savour those whiskies and it is my reward at the end of the day. I can still get in a worthwhile practice the next day with no ill effects...This thread is ancient...Dennis
