A friend of mine plays for the Oakland A's and said that he had asked a player on Cal Ripkins team how he stayed so fit for so many years. The other player replied that Cal always drank a Sixer during, and after workouts (1 sixer total spread out.) This just made me wonder if beer can be considered a post workout carb recovery drink.

LOL. You believe that he was serious too?

He may be serious but it's regular beer that has a high gi because it contains a big amount of malt.
