Drink beer to prevent bone loss!

Many of us have heard that lots of cycling can cause or contribute to loss of bone density. AFAIK, the mechanism is not known. But I always knew there was a good reason to drink beer after a ride:

Nothing better than a nice cold bottle of quality beer (Leffe is my choice) after a long, tough ride. I think more than 1 though and recovery starts to slide in the wrong direction...
