Great article until they lost all credibility...

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
Seriously, no check to see if that is even a real quote???

I agree with everything in the article but it is very poorly done. [paraphrase]Beer is good for you, but you still shouldn't really drink it. Have water and fruit instead.[/paraphrase]

Oh well, some press is better than no press.

You expect fact checking from Fox News?

It sounds like they mean its just better to have water/fruit right after a workout as opposed to a beer - not that you shouldn't drink beer altogether. There's not too many people who would argue that beer is better for you right after working out. I think the point they were trying to make was that it can help re-build muscle and hydrate when you have one several hours after a workout.

I ran a 13 mile training run on Sunday. When I got in, I went directly to the kegerator and poured myself an IPA.

I made it. I saw what went in it. It's almost all water.
