Beer has always been a good post-workout beverage.  No need to wreck it by making it part energy drink.  That's just stupid.
 
2014-03-06 02:56:21 PM
Not really a new trend. Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer.

0.5 %? That's not beer. That quasi-beer flavored soda.

Can i add Vodka?

Fark. That. Heavy chocolate milk after a bike race or hard training ride, once the nausea starts to fade.

Well, only beer fills your Q zone.

I guess I can look forward to seeing a bunch of lardasses drink this 'fit' beer in a vain attempt to make it look like they're interested in physical fitness.

FTFA: His study found that when athletes binged on alcohol after an intensive strength-training workout, their protein synthesis decreased by nearly 40 percent.

Now, the athletes in Hawley's study did a lot of drinking: They consumed roughly eight shots of vodka mixed with orange juice over a three-hour period.


Party!!

DRTFA, but the proper size of a beer is an imperial pint.  That's 20 imperial fluid ounces, or 568ml.

Not 12 oz, and certainly not an undersized 473ml US pint.

/You need both weight and reps to get the full benefit
 
2014-03-06 03:41:08 PM
This is totally stupid - there's much better post-workout beverages - like a nice IPA or a Pint of Guinness.
 
2014-03-06 03:43:06 PM
So, work out more after working out?
 
2014-03-06 03:50:41 PM
Can I do these in the squat rack?
 
2014-03-06 03:51:02 PM
Meh.  I always have a beer after working out.
 
2014-03-06 03:51:36 PM
Sometimes it's easier to get an extra 300 calories or so from a couple of beers with dinner than it is to eat more.

/then the vaporizer comes out and you get another 800 from a milkshake because OH MAN, A MILKSHAKE
 
2014-03-06 03:52:09 PM
Why the alcohol in there?  I don't unnerstand how that helps.

Huh. There's a part in 1984 where a guy complains the bartender won't pour him a pint, only a half-liter, which wasn't quite enough. I always wondered about that since a pint is less than a half-liter, but now I know.

It's always been that way. People that don't like Budweiser don't know how to drink it: in the blazing heat, thirsty and sore from working at a hard job - framing a house, roofing, asphalt- a cold can of Bud is the exact right amount of calories, nutrients, and water to pick you right back up. You can't ever drink enough of it to get drunk, you don't have to have a gut full of water sloshing around and sports drinks don't make you happier when you drink them

Working class gatorade, that's what it really is.
 
2014-03-06 04:28:20 PM
I do love my beer, but the best post-workout drink IS chocolate milk. Chocolatey, milky goodness.

Listen, I always wanted a job like yours.
Do you apply at advertising agencies?
Do the companies solicit you? And if the latter, what grabbed their attention?

From the description, I believe this stuff is going to taste like shiat, and not the proverbial "good shiat", either.

Me too. I'm way ahead of the curve on this one. My workouts are way better when I drink a beer afterward than drinking the beer first.

Its bound to suck. Its Canadian beer.

Your basic domestic corporate suds goes down great after doing yard work on a hot day.  Hence, lawnmower beer.

Save the better stuff for after a good meal, an evening down at the pub or when you just want to reward yourself. You'll appreciate it more,

My grandpa was an old-school bodybuilder and was moderately successful (I believe he was Mr. Ohio at one point in the 30's).  I had a clipping from an old magazine discussing the old days, and he was quoted as saying his post-workout regime was either a glass or milk or a beer.
Atta boy, gramps!

Day_Old_Dutchie: Your basic domestic corporate suds goes down great after doing yard work on a hot day.  Hence, lawnmower beer.

And I agree with a good lawnmower beer / Bud's after physical labor - or in my case, post-beer-league-hockey beer.  When you step off the ice a sweaty mess, an ice cold Bud hits the spot right then (although I guess a Labatt's or Molson would be more appropriate).
The triple-hopped IPA or the meal-in-a-glass oatmeal stout is for the bar afterwards, once you're re-hydrated.

/ beer league!

We just thought that maybe we could do something that would support a drinker, make it still socially fun, and help them accomplish what needs to be accomplished after an aggressive workout," he says.

Help them what now? Could you please be less specific?  I don't know how you could help them accomplish anything if you don't know what it is you are helping.  My assumption is that this is for the functional alcoholics that want something to drink after their workout that will appear to be a standard energy drink but give them a little dose of the good stuff to take the edge off their brew shakes?

I actually like to carry one with me for a mid-ride beverage on rides fifty miles and longer.

I like to end my rides at the local brewery too.

Hell, my commute home every night takes me to the front door of the local brewery.

Nothing new here.

Well, some of us like our beer with a little more flavor and body than Bud can provide.

Oh, and sustenance.

Bud has none of the above. It's just over carbonated piss flavored water.
