Side Or­der The Four Crafti­est Beers

We’ve popped the lid on four world- class beers that – with the help of some note­wor­thy in­gre­di­ents – will help you brew up a more ro­bust con­sti­tu­tion. Pull up a stool, this round is on us

01 Brew­dog Punk IPA The high sil­i­con con­tent of IPAS helps main­tain strong bones, ac­cord­ing to re­search by the Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Nu­tri­tion. As the ideal post-train­ing brew, it could also come in handy when you’re stum­bling home a few hours later. 02 Hop House 13 This Guin­ness-af­fil­i­ated hoppy lager is a smart al­ter­na­tive to the black stuff, but no less nu­tri­tious. With hops shown to have an an­tianx­i­ety ef­fect, it’s the best way to kick back af­ter a hard 9-5. 03 Abita Pur­ple Haze The resver­a­trol in the rasp­ber­ries used to brew this ale can pro­tect your brain from age-re­lated de­cline, say re­searchers at Georgetown Uni­ver­sity in Wash­ing­ton, DC. One to re­mem­ber in the morn­ing. 04 Ast­ley’s North­ern Hop Re­fresh­ment needed af­ter a pun­ish­ing squat ses­sion? A Uni­ver­sity of Ge­or­gia study found that gin­ger – present in this ‘red’ lager – can take the sting out of mus­cle sore­ness.

Early-hours haute cui­sine is usu­ally some­thing of an oxy­moron. Past 11pm, fare of any kind tends to be sought with one thing in mind – main­lin­ing calo­ries to slide a crash mat un­der your bur­geon­ing han­gover. We think you can do bet­ter. The duck and waf­fle from, erm, Duck & Waf­fle (duckand­waf­ has your back – a con­fit duck leg served with a hot, fluffy waf­fle and fried duck egg, and topped with sweet maple syrup, this is the sort of gourmet of­fer­ing de­signed to im­prove your con­sti­tu­tion at all hours. Luck­ily, it’s served 24/ 7. “The carbs from the waf­fle will help bal­ance blood sugar – ideal whether you want to get some sleep, or keep the party go­ing,” says Price. One less thing to re­gret, in other words. “This dish is bal­anced so that you feel well-fed af­ter­wards but won’t suf­fer from the heavy spices in the morn­ing,” con­firms Duck & Waf­fle chef di­rec­tor Dan Do­herty. We have no de­sire to be­lieve oth­er­wise.
