Theory of "BEER IS LIFE"

We as mountain bikers realize the need for proper nutrition before during and after a ride.  These ingredients are essential for building strong muscles, healthy immune systems and basically equate to fuel for "LIFE". 

If we look at what ingredients which go into making beer and compare them to what our bodies need for fuel, wouldn't they be similar?

Here is my theory.  If nutrition is life and  beer is made up of the same ingredients, would one not deduct that "beer" therefor IS LIFE.

Yep, Guiness is my choice as well for a responsible, after ride drink when no one is driving (or riding anything where they may be or could place anyone else in danger).
