Is It Fine To Drink Beer After Sport?

Even Arjen Robben drinks beer after sport

Dear Dave,
After our weekly kickabout all I want to do is crack open a thirst-quenching beer. Well, there’s this guy, you probably know a dude just like him, and I’ll call him Ed because that’s his name, anyway, Ed reckons that I’m actually dehydrating myself further when I enjoy a delicious beer after my game. I know? What a dick! Anyway, please bestow upon me some of your knowledge so that I might school this fool. I mean, is it fine to drink beer after sport?

Hey Jaco,

Ha, pity the fool! I actually knew a guy just like that who used to frequent a bar I worked at back in the day. He eventually earned himself the nickname ENOs, because "He knows Everything..." Anyway, research suggests that it's absolutely fine for you to crack open a beer after any sporting event. Just bear in mind, a low-alcohol beer with a pinch of salt added will help you to rehydrate better than a boozier brew would. Your beer needs to be 3.5 percent alcohol or less, otherwise the benefit vanishes. Your favourite too strong? Mix it with a non-alcoholic brew. And don’t forget the salty snacks.


Ps. Please give Ed a lovely late-tackle from me. Guy sounds like he deserves it.
