If you just want a beer after spending time at the gym, you’re not alone.

According to Yahoo,

Two new studies suggest there’s a link between exercise and drinking. In the first study, Pennsylvania State University researchers discovered an “unequivocal correlation” between exercising and then drinking, most notably when the workout was particularly strenuous. The second study, from the University of Houston, found that the brains of lab rodents responded to exercise and alcohol in a similar way to humans. Scientists there say it’s possible that by drinking after a workout we are subconsciously trying to extend the euphoria of our workout high.

Interesting.  As a person who works out on a regular, I have to say that I don’t crave alcohol after a work out, or at all, for that matter.
