Yes, it’s officially been found by researchers at Grenada University Spain that, after exercise, a beer is more effective at rehydrating the body than water! This is because the sugars, salts and bubbles in a pint may help people absorb fluids more quickly…and we already know that good quality artisan cider, made from 100% fruit juice is one of our 5 a-day… 😉
However I wouldn’t necessarily recommend combining the two…there is a ‘Beer Mile Challenge’ which requires a single participant to drink a full-sized beer, run a quarter mile, then repeat the process three times. This results in the consumption of four beers and the running of four quarter miles (hence the beer mile). The entire process is timed. The total time is often used as a measuring stick of competency.

Right … I’m off for a run!
