Boffins brew up hydrating beer

A COLD beer at the end of a long hot day is set to become even more refreshing after researchers at a Queensland university improved the hydrating effects of the amber fluid.

While sipping a frosty ale when the temperature is scorching is an Australian tradition, the practice is often counter-productive as the alcohol content increases dehydration.

The consumption of alcohol while dehydrated is also known to increase drunkenness, leading to the possibility of risky behaviour and, of course, the dreaded hangover.

But nutrition researchers at Griffith University's Health Institute believe they've found the way to enjoy a beer and keep your fluid levels in check.
The institute manipulated the electrolyte levels of two commercial beers, one regular strength and one light, before giving them to people who had just been undertaking rigorous exercise.

Beer doesn't make me hungover. It just makes me feel bloated and watery. If I feel hungover, it's because of hard liquor or hard liquor + beer (with an emphasis on the hard liquor, where you think beer is a nice palate cleanser, but it just makes you feel icky).
