GU Brew

New GU Brew is about electrolytes first, then carbohydrates. But carbs are key to endurance nutrition so we take them seriously. We use a 50:50 ratio of fructose (simple) and maltodextrin (complex) carbs because carbs in this combination increase the amount of energy available to muscles.

GU Brew is naturally flavored with an ultralight taste profile for great drinkability prized by hardworking athletes.


Box of 24 single serve stick packs - $32.40
Canister (24 servings) - $18.00

*Flavor is temporarily unavailable when unable to choose flavor.

GU Brew focuses more on hydration and less on carbohydrate delivery, offering 70 calories per serving. This 3% carbohydrate solution provides added flexibility to the athlete. Mix it as instructed for rapid absorption or combine with your favorite GU/Roctane gel for increased energy density during longer workout days. For athletes looking for a more energy dense carbohydrate solution, try Roctane Energy Drink.

Hydration before exercise:

To ensure proper pre-exercise hydration, consume approximately 16-24 oz. (470-720 ml) of GU Electrolyte Brew within an hour of the start of your workout.

Rehydration during exercise:

Fluid replacement should approximate sweat and urine losses during exercise and is dependent on many environmental factors. Generally, it is required to consume 7-10 oz. of fluids (200-300 ml) every 10 to 20 minutes during exercise, but specific individual recommendations are based on exercise duration, sport dynamics, sweat rates, and individual tolerance.

Rehydration after exercise:

Rehydration after exercise should aim to correct fluid loss accumulated during exercise. Depending on one’s exercise duration and intensity, replace the electrolyte losses from sweat by consuming GU Brew and jump start protein syntheses with the help of GU Recovery Brew.


What happened to Brew Electrolyte? Can I still purchase it?

Brew retains all of the attributes of the previous formula with a slight formulation tweak to improve performance.

Why GU Brew when original GU is already great?

They’re two different products, designed to work in tandem. Electrolyte Brew keeps you hydrated by replenishing the electrolytes your body sweats out during exercise. GU provides your body with energy to exercise and to maintain your effort during long workouts and events. The two products serve different, but equally important, functions. Most of our elite athletes carry both GU energy gels and Electrolyte Brew with them during training and racing.

GU Brew tastes lighter than some of the other sports drinks I’ve tried. Does this mean it’s less effective?

No! Many sports drinks on the market are full of sugary sweeteners and other unnecessary additives. Large amounts of sugar in your drink can lead to bloating in your belly. With GU Brew, we give you only the stuff you need to stay hydrated and none of the extra fluff.

How much should I drink each hour?

Approximately 24-32 ounces will do it. On hot days, you may even want to drink twice as much.

Will GU Brew recharge my body faster than GU energy gel?

Try it, every person will react differently. However, we don’t suggest you forgo eating GU or Roctane altogether. These gels pack valuable amino acid formulas that reduce fatigue and sharpen your mental state. Our sports drink was designed to work in tandem with the regular intake of GU Energy Gel and Roctane.

How long does GU Brew, once mixed into a beverage, remain stable? Does it need to be refrigerated?

Ideally GU Brew should be mixed just prior to exercise or competition. If you know you’re going to need more than one bottle of GU Brew, we suggest you carry it along in powder form and mix it with water when needed.

Should I dilute GU Brew?

No! GU Brew was specifically formulated to deliver the energy and electrolytes you need to perform your best, hour after hour.

Is it affected by heat if warmed up for use on cold days?

It is not affected by heat, but some people like the taste of hot GU Brew while others don’t.

Are there any foods or drinks to avoid while using GU Brew that would stunt or block the effectiveness of the ingredients?

All food, when taken simultaneously with GU gels or GU Brew, will diminish their powers. GU gels and GU Brew are designed to be used on an empty stomach (at least 3 hours after the last meal). This way you can keep fueling even when you’re pushing yourself to the max without worrying about slowing down to digest food.

Is GU Brew Kosher?

GU Energy Gel, Roctane, GU Brew, and GU Recovery Brew are all certified Kosher. Chomps are not.

  • Better than the others

    If you can't stand how sweet Gatorade is and how plain the other brand flavors are, GO WITH GU! The perfect combination of taste, electrolytes and carbs makes training and racing much easier and more satisfying.
  • good stuff!
    Posted by Brad on 5/23/2014
    The high points of GU brew are there is more carbs and calories. The problem with nuun and gu brew electrolyte tabs, is that there isn't much but flavor and electrolytes.
  • Love this stuff
    Posted by Kathy on 5/16/2014
    I love this stuff, I can't stand Gatorade because it is way too sweet. This Gu Brew is awesome - not too sweet and great flavor!!
  • Blueberry Pomegranate!!!
    Posted by Shony on 5/15/2014
    I mix one scoop of Blueberry Pomegranate with one scoop of Tropical Fruit Roctane and it is the most heavenly experience of a lifetime. The brew by itself is so light and refreshing while maximizing my salt intake because I sweat a ton! Can't go wrong with these products.
  • Great taste and not too sweet!!!

    The blueberry pomegranate has just the right amount of flavor. It tastes great and doesn't make your mouth gummy. I was drinking it today while doing intervals on my trainer and it was superb.
  • MUCH better than Gatorade!
    Posted by Jessica on 3/31/2014
    I love filling my Camel Back with Lemon lime Gu Brew when I go on a hike in the summer. Flavor delivers a delicious punch and keeps me well hydrated for long runs as well. Great product I would choose over Gatorade ANY day!
  • Works for me and taste good!
    Posted by Drinks a lot on 2/24/2014
    I have been using Hammer Heed for 6 months or so and wanted to try something different. The Brew taste good! I usually make of bottle of both and put them on my bike. You should try it.
  • Raspberry is delicious!!!!
    Posted by Robert on 2/19/2014
    I have been using the raspberry brew for my first half marathon training and it has been great so far. Gives your body that little extra that water doesn't. I have tried the Blueberry Pomegranite but prefer the Raspberry the most out of those two.
  • Better than Gatoraid
    Posted by Frank on 2/19/2014
    I love this. I can drink this on runs and I am not thirsty again right after I put the drink away. Best one out there!
