Can beer take place of water?

Reports say beer is mostly water. Can having a few beers count towards my daily water amount which is 8 glasses per day?

    Beer low alcohol was often drank more than water.  Before good water was avaleble to drink. So yes.

    No. A glass of cool beer is often more tempting than plain water, but ... peeing out more than you're taking in, can have a dehydrating effect.

    Before the 20th century it was drunk in preference to water ( even by children) because it was free off germs ( water is boiled during brewing) The water in cities like London was contaminated with sewage and cholera was common. 

    However it was also very cheap , not £5 a pint!

    You can drink 8-10 glasses of water daily, if you drink beer in the place of water, then it will be quite harmful for your body.

    Depends on the beer. The more alcohol, the greater the diuretic effect, which would require you to consume even more water. However, beer can take the place of food. Some monks used to consume no solid food during Lent and would go 40 days on the double bock that they brewed.
