A beer that won't give you a hangover

Still Waters

Scientists have created a beer which could finally put an end to the dreaded hangover.

The beer has been created by a team of researchers in Australia who say it prevents drinkers from becoming dehydrated.

They have added electrolytes - an ingredient in sports drinks - which helps to keep them refreshed.

However, inevitably, some may feel there is a downside to the new drink. In order to create it, they have had to reduce the alcohol content.

This sounds just as useful as alcohol free beer.

A very light beer with electrolytes may as well be a sports drink, or maybe water.

The electrolytes did not effect the taste of the beer as it did not have a taste to begin with.

Another solution to avoid hangovers is to just drink water as well as you drink beer.

I guess that's something you wouldn't touch Odd, judging by the hefty bottle on your profile pic!

If I were drinking just for the flavor, sure, I might give it a go...but i'm clearly not after the taste. (;

Have someone force you to drink a Gatorade before you pass out, normally works

Ultimate cure for hangover, been around forever. Something called moderation.

Better yet, call it Brawndo. :w00t:

Beer rarely gives me a hangover. It would take a lot of beer to give me a hangover.

Depends on the alcohol content which varies from different brands.

So why did they have to reduce the alcohol content? Couldn't they just have increased the electrolytes ?

Maybe not for some reason. They're the scientists I quess.

EDIT: I do know this lady that pours a couple shots of vodka into a regular-size bottle of gatorade.

Probably, as added electrolytes does nothing to stop the impact of alcohol on the liver.

But, being a "low alcohol" content beer, most people would suffer little effect on their liver unless, I suppose, they drank too much.

Keep the regular alcohol content and add the electrolytes then I'll try it. As long as it doesn't taste weird.

GatorAle ;)

Instead of learning to stop nonsensical and self destructive behavior, count on humans to spend time and money inventing a way to continue it with less discomfort.

Once again I have to say it... the movie Idiocracy is looking more prophetic all the time.
