I write these hangover posts to help future me and maybe future you, have less hangovers and stuff.
I had three beers last night and woke up with a Level 2 (scale of 1 to 5, five being bad) hangover.
Beer One: East Brother Brewing: Gold IPA. 7.3%. Hops unknown. 16oz can.
Beer Two: Liquid Gravity Brewing: Mo Diggity DDH WCIPA. 7%. All Mosaic Hop. 16oz can.
Beer Three: East Brother Brewing : Gold IPA (same as beer one).
Drinking session: 8PM to Midnight.
Setup: Foot long tuna Subway sandwich at 6:00 PM (slightly embarrassing – work dinner). No food afterwards.
Water: 16oz of water during drinking session.
Normally I drink two 16oz beers a session with an occasional 12oz or 16oz beer. And I usually don’t have more than a Level 1 hangover (aware I had beers the previous night but no headache or sluggishness).
Verdict: I think the combo of only one glass of water, not a lot of food for a base and a slight uptick in alcohol consumed all contributed to this morning’s headache heavy hangover.
Lesson: Hydrate, dumbass.
