A Brew Won't Do

Beer doesn't quench your thirst

(HealthDayNews) -- Think that cold beer will quench your thirst? Think again.

The Department of Food Science at the University of California had 12 experts test 18 beers to see what properties made beer "thirst quenching". The only positives they found were the degrees of carbonation and bubble density.

As reported in Appetite, all the factors that give beer its character -- the foam, color, flavor and aroma -- actually reduced its ability to relieve thirst.
