I'm a little late to this here show, but for Christmas, my "child-thing" (son) purchased for moi a "Mr. Beer" Beer making kit.

While the original brew stuff that came with the kit was a little tame (Northwest IPA), with a little experimentation, I have come up with some kick-butt brewski that tastes like heaven!

That little brew keg has not had a moments rest since I got it. Even my microbrew snob friends have given this stuff the thumbs up!

Tonight, my work "Team" is heading to MarDon Resort in beautiful Othello/Royal City, Washington...on tap this evening are a "The Shadow Knows" Dark Porter, and Apricot Not-So-Pale IPA, a Hop and Raspberry Hef, and a Blueberry Canadian with Blackberry Honey (5.6 on that one).

I have a dear friend at work who kinda ragged me to take up home brewing as a hobby; so, in his honor, I have named the entire line of beverages "Blame It On Aaron!"

1 hour, 11 minutes:pint: until quitting time, a full case on ice...mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-MMM!

"It's Better To Drink Beer After Exercise Than Water

Submitted by Julie on November 2, 2007 - 8:47pm. Diet & Fitness Health Health & Science Research

 Researchers at Granada University in Spain have come across a discovery that will undoubtedly please athletes and sports enthusiasts - a pint of beer post-workout or match is better at rehydrating the human body than water.

Professor Manuel Garzon, a member of Granada's medical faculty, made the finding after tests on 25 students over several months. Researchers believe that it is the sugars, salts, and bubbles in a beer that may help people absorb fluids more quickly.

The subjects in the study were asked to run on a treadmill at temperatures of 104F (40C) until they were close to exhaustion. Once they had reached the point of giving up, researchers measured their hydration levels, motor skills, and concentration ability.

Half of the subjects were given two half pints of Spanish lager to drink, and the other half were given just water.

Garzon said that the rehydration effection in those who were given beer was "slightly better" than those who were given only water. He also believes that the carbon dioxide in beer helps quench thirst more quickly, and that beer's carbohydrates replace calories lost during physical exertion.

The average person loses around 1 liter (33oz) of water for every hour of exercise in sweat. Rehydrating after a workout is crucial, as a lack of hydration is more likely to make one feel tired, fuzzyheaded, and suffer from headaches.

Based on the results of the study, researchers recommend moderate consumption of beer as a part of athletes' diets. "Moderate consumption" for men is 500ml per day, and for women is 250ml per day.

So that explains why Babe Ruth was so good. His method of training was nearly 100 years ahead of its time."
