Is it better to drink the night before or the night after a hard workout. I've been sober for a long time because i've been training hardcore.
+ is beer, wine, or spirits better

I'd have to say it's better to not drink it at all, but that's just my opinion.

Alcohol is a diuretic, so I'd say if you're gonna drink, do it after your event or hard workout. And always drink an equal amount of water at the same time.

Beer -- higher carbs and lower alcohol that wine (generally) and spirits.
Wine -- easier to sip, tastes better at room temp (at least some of them do)
Spirits -- for when you want to really tie one on.
pretty sure you have to be 21 in most statesmore mud
