Why can "overdag" not go at the end?

It can. "Ik drink geen bier overdag" is good Dutch as well. While an indication of time usually comes right after the verb, it's not incorrect to put it at the end. For example: "Ik drink 's avonds nooit koffie" or "Ik drink nooit koffie 's avonds" are both correct.

"Ik drink niet bier overdag" is wrong but "Ik drink overdag geen bier" is right, why?
