Post Marathon Beer????

I received my Runner's Information Booklet in the mail this week and started reading it yesterday. In the information about the Finish Line festivities, it mentions where to get your "beer coupon" and pick up your free beer.

Areyoukiddinme? After running 26.2 miles, I'm going to drink an alcoholic beverage? Won't I dehydrate on the spot?

I decided to post this question on RunningAhead - a great website where I have my running log and I read many forums on all topics running. Here's the beer thread - and it ends up that drinking beer after a marathon is not such a bad thing after all.

Ingesting something cold was the last thing I had on my mind following mine last week. I was shaking so uncontrollably, I probably looked like I was having a seizure. On a normal day, under normal conditions though, I can see where it would be quite tasty following a marathon. I recommend food to accompany though. :)
