For a website that has “beer” in its name, we talk surprisingly little about beer. But we do enjoy drinking it, especially after a nice long ruck. The question then is, “what is the best beer after rucking?”

We’ll our readers are a beer-loving bunch, we posed this question to our readers in the first annual “Best of Rucking” survey. Below are the top three post-ruck beers.

#1 Bud Heavy

It is the King of Beer and it reigned supreme in our voting. In some ways it may be the official beer of GORUCK because if you ever make it down to HQ, odds are that’s the drink they’ll put in your hand no matter what time of day it is.

#2 Cold

While ruckers apparently prefer Bud Heavy after an event, their second favorite beer is a cold one. Preference be damned, after putting out under weight all that matters is the temperature.

#3 Guinness

That’s right, after rucking long and hard the third beer of choice according to our readers is a big, bold, dark, heavy Guinness. Quite possibly the anthesis of Budweiser.

Honorable Mentions

Sam Adams, Coke, Whisky, Free, and Your Mom all brought in at least a few votes.
