Drink some beer

Unwinding at the end of the day is a great way to boost morale. The trick is to keep it moderate and not overindulge.

Alcohol doesn't really unwind you. And relying on it to help you relax or code is probably not a good idea.

Instead I recommend doing something mildly physical between getting home and coding. Housework, playing with the kids if you have them, dog for a walk, or a mild jog should do the trick. Alternatively having a warm bath works well for me.
