on a treadmill for an hour in a heated room,
then either drank water or 660 milliliters of beer

A moderate amount of beer after exercise didn’t
adversely affect these young athletes’ recovery.
In fact the beer proved just as effective as

Nonalcoholic beer may be even a better option
for athletes. A study of marathon runners by
Medicine & Science Journal found that those

A San Francisco biotech startup has an unusual solution
to Africa's rhinoceros poaching problem: Flood the
market with synthetic rhino horn.
Biotech firm Pembient has created a fake rhino horn
that is genetically identical to the real thing by using the
protein keratin and small amount of rhino DNA.
From this chemical reaction, the company can produce
a dried powder that is then 3-D printed into a horn-
looking object. As part of its first major initiative to
help curb rhino poaching,
Pembient is partnering with one of Beijing’s largest
brewers to create a beer brewed with the faux rhino horn
powder. Rhino beer is consumed as a hangover cure in
China and rhino horn is thought to have beauty
enhancing properties and ability to counteract
impotency. It’s more valuable than cocaine or gold
with a single ounce fetching up to $5,000.

When Mark Hellendrung bought the Narragansett beer company in 2005,
close to nobody drank the 125-year-old New England lager. Gone were the
glory days of the 1960s, when the beer was the official sponsor of the Red
Sox, produced up to two million barrels a year, and ran its brewery at close
to capacity to meet demand. The brand brewed fewer than 600 barrels in
2004 and the next year, Hellendrung, a former president of Nantucket
Nectars, bought it from Pabst Brewing Co. for an undisclosed amount.
Now the native Rhode Islander can be proud of his regional beer again.
Narragansett produced 78,034 barrels in 2014, according to the company,
and pulled in $12 million in revenue, up from just $100,000 in 2005.
In 2013, it cracked the Brewers Association's top 50 breweries in the
U.S., based on beer sales by volume, for the first time ever. It jumped
another 12 spots last year, to No. 37. it is becoming a popular alternative
to Pabst Blue Ribbon among price- sensitive beer drinkers .

Narragansett sold just 9 million liters and hasn't made much of a dent
outside its surrounding regions. More than 80 percent of Narragansett’s
sales come from the D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Providence,
nd Boston metropolitan areas. a third-party wholesaler, or from the
brewer and/or manufacturer.
