Please settle an argument. Is beer a good post-workout drink?

It may taste good when you’re thirsty, but drinking beer is not an effective way to rehydrate after exercising. Alcohol has a diuretic effect. As a result, instead of replenishing your fluid levels, beer promotes additional water loss via urination. Some individuals erroneously believe that beer gives them a carbohydrate boost plus extra potassium. An urgent need for these nutrients immediately following a workout, however, simply does not exist. Even if an individual needed these specific nutrients, beer is a relatively poor source. For example, compared to orange juice, a 12-ounce can of beer has only 13 grams and 90 milligrams of carbohydrates and potassium, respectively, versus 26 grams of carbohydrates and 450 milligrams of potassium in 8 ounces of orange juice.
