Do you spend hundreds of pounds on ridiculous sports drinks and the such-like? You do? Well in my opinion you’re wasting money, money that could be far better spent on beer.
Especially beer like Augustiner Dunkel.
Augustiner Dunkel is a very solid and very dark beer indeed – with so much malt you could probably stand a spoon up in it.
With an aroma not far off a bag of demerera sugar and tasting like glazed and roasted chestnuts, it’s one hell of a pick-me-up.
There’s an ample carbonation and some spicy notes that add to the fun, too.
There’s also pretty much zero in the way of bitterness – so even damp-eyed, soft people, can enjoy it…
Dunkel is a style that’s so (to my mind) refreshing, sustaining and fluid replacing, and I think it’s just the sort of thing we should all be drinking after vigorous physical activity*:
Runners – stock up on it for post-race refreshment, MAMILs (look it up!) – keep some at cellar temperature to enjoy when you stagger back in the door all bow-legged and scrotally-damaged.
I’m going to get a stock in for the – all-too-inevitable – leaf-sweeping and garden-buggering-about that comes my way at this time of year.
In short: pour all the isotonic shit down the sink and drink Dunkel instead!
(*PS: It’s worth noting that I have precisely zero in the way of medical training, but have strong suspicions that a lot of people are wasting their money on pointless sugary bullshit)
