Are you one of those people who likes to work out and drink beer, instead of Gatorade? There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day for both? Then are you ever in luck. Introducing Lean Machine Recovery Ale.

Here are the stats per 12 ounces:

Gatorade: 80 calories, 21g carb, 21g sugar, 160mg sodium

Bud Light: 110 calories, 6.6g carb, (sugar not listed), 10mg sodium

New Belgium Ranger IPA : 148 calories, 11g carbs (neither sugar nor sodium listed)

A light beer only sets you back a few more calories than a sports drink, and far fewer grams of sugar and carbohydrates. They’re low in alcohol, too, certainly not enough to dehydrate you (remember, folks … alcohol is a diuretic, which dehydrates you more). But me, I prefer the thick, hoppy, heavier craft beers, which aren’t exactly light. Most craft beers and IPAs are higher in alcohol and quickly sneak into 150+ calorie range. More ABV (alcohol by volume) generally means more calories. After a few pints you’ve canceled anything that run may have burned (but better to have burned some than not at all!), not to mention the hydration factor will actually reverse itself and start to dehydrate you with more alcohol consumption.  Most draft beers in bars and breweries are served as pints – that’s 4 more ounces than the typical bottle or can. Keep that in mind, too.

Let’s ignore for a moment that the beer is described as a “lager ale pilsner,” which sounds like a bunch of nonsense, and think about how it could actually help you recover from an extra tough SoulCycle session.

According to an NPR interview with sports nutritionist Ben Desbrow, the ingredients in beer (grains, hops and yeast) naturally provide a lot of things present in most sports drinks—carbohydrates for example.

But before you bring a six-pack of your favorite IPA to the gym, you should know that these benefits only come through when the alcohol comes down. We mean way down. Lean machine clocks in at a Prohibition-worthy .5% ABV.
