Recover With Beer

Two hundred and fifty kegs. That's how much
beer was served at this year's Crescent City
(LA) Classic post-race party; that's the
equivalent of 41,250 bottles of beer -- and it
doesn't include the beer consumed by many
while actually running the race. Along with
water stops there were 3 oz. cups of beer on the
course.  Race organizers cited a scientific study
that showed beer followed by water was as
effective as water-only for rehydration and
recovery.  Many runners however opted for
more beer instead of the water.

Drink On The Job

Employees at a Florida health care company are
allowed to drink on the company's tab, on
company time, thanks to a perk known as "Beer
Cart Fridays."  Advance Medical CEO Jennifer
Fuicelli said that she's been rolling out the beer
cart for two years as part of an "unorthodox
corporate culture" that rewards employees for
hard work.She says the company began in 2005
with four employees and now has 350 workers
in two locations — Port Orange, Fla., and
Broomfield, Colo.  The company also hosts
costume days for Halloween, barbecues on the
clock and a birthday "get out of jail free" card,
which can be used for a paid day off.

Much like Champagne & Bourbon - a Kolsch Beer, or
"True" Kolsch Beer, can only be brewed with a
Kolsch license in Colonge, Germany.  It is the only
beer that cannot be brewed outside of Colonge.
