    Actually I heard something interesting this past weekend when I toured Boston Beer Co. (Samuel Adams). They made a GOSE style specifically for the Boston Marathon and part of the description during the tasting was that the added Salt Content for the style (read electrolytes) "could"possibly provide a small amount of recovery for runners.

    Obviously without a scientific study this is just speculation, but I like the idea of it, a low alcohol beer with some electrolytes is certainly "better" than a big imperial IPA or Stout.

    But in the long run no alcoholic drink is going to be "good for you" as a pre-race drink or race recovery drink.
