It's a nice theory, but I don't buy into it much, because if they were planning on having to defend a positive test, why not avoid the postitive test in the first place by taking epitestosterone? This is a well-know (doping) technique for restoring the proper T/E ratio...

Unless the test they're using somehow detects the (artificial) testosterone, in which case the beer is useless anyway.

Alternetely, it could have been psychology: "Look, Floyd's given up on the tour - he's drinking a beer!" Makes the attack the next day all the more effective.

Unless he just wanted to have a beer.
