After a 30 miler I Pop into the pub and hava a coupe of pints. If you netflix the 25th hour you can see the pub. I just found another place that has carlsberg on draught. Beer after a long ride is the best. It's like getting a two for one.

I usually have a Fat Tire or 1554 in the beer fridge in the garage. Very rarely do I have a beer after riding.

Funny you should mention that. I rode for a few hours today and when I got home I said to the wife: "Wife, let's go out. I really want a beer." So we did and I got a Leinenkugel's (sp) summer blend or something like that....unbelievably delicious.

No booze for me. Post ride, I usually go for another Pepsi and some pizza.
Sunday when I finish the 400k, it will be just about time for Family Pancake House to open, and I'm heading there for some coffee and a wheelbarrow full of pancakes.

From which scene? I really love that movie. Brian Cox's line at the end when they have a shot of Jack almost kills me every time.

Anyway, I thought about that today. I usually drink a lot of water when I get home...and maybe have some snacks. I don't start with the beer (or wine or whiskey) until after I've showered and had a chance to get back to normal. Just my opinion!

If it is a *really* stinking hot day, a nice cold Guinness can be a pleasant recovery drink after the shower.

No beer. I stopped drinking pretty much any thing other than water. I hate drinking my calories.

Beer... yes. I have on several occasions. After a ride, you feel as though you need to relax. Beer is a great solution.

Yes, I know that it is not very good for a possibly dehydrated person, but in my defense, after a good ride, I almost always have a 1 to 1 ratio of beer to water.

I can't think of a single time I have ever had a beer post ride. Normally I just like to relax with ice water and lemon.

You would not believe how awesome munching a fresh lemon after a long hot ride is!

Occasionally I'll have a cold frothy malt libation, but most of the time I end up drinking water or G2(low calorie Gatorade)after riding(umm, maybe because a lot of my riding is done commuting to work). The brews do seem especially tasty after a ride however!

Beer, while enjoyable, is not a healthy beverage.

I used to look at food and beverages as a source of satisfaction. Now I just think of what I consume as fuel and hydration.

As much as I like to down a brewski now and again, I like your thought process. That is the only way I can lose weight. For now it is mostly water and a swig or two of G2 gatorade.

Beer

I had to give it up when I was 21 due to drinking to much beer and not enough riding. I drink water or a sports drink. that was 26 years ago. ECB1
