It’s Friday night. After five days of work and work and work, you’re finally free to have some good time with your best buddies. So, you go off and grab something to eat with your friends then you go to your favorite bar to start the good night. You drink a bottle of beer and have a few laughs. Then, you drink some more. Later, things start going out of hand; you have drunk a little too much.
Many people get caught in car accidents due to drunk driving. This is just one of the effects of too much alcohol in the body. Many people also use alcohol as an excuse to do things they normally would not do. Alcohol somehow makes people braver. And the most common source of alcohol that humans take is the beer.
A lot of people love beer. There is even a festival that celebrates with drinking kegs and kegs of beer. If you’re familiar with the Oktoberfest, well that’s the one. So, drinking a lot of beer means you’re taking in alcohol into your system. The alcohol content of beer ranges from 3 to 30%. It depends on the type of beer. So how long does beer stay in your system?
It depends on your beer intake. The more beer you drink, the longer it would stay in your system. It takes time for the beer to be processed by your body and to be excreted out of your body. Usually, people can metabolize half an ounce of alcohol in an hour. That is the standard for one drink. So if you drink, let’s say 4 standard drinks, then, it would take around 4 hours to consume the alcohol in your body.
How long does beer stay in your system? Well, it really depends. There are many factors to be considered. First is the alcohol content of the beer you’re drinking. Second, the amount of beer you drink. Another factor is the frequency of your alcohol intake. How often you drink beer affect the time it takes for the beer to be metabolized. The drinker is also a factor. The metabolism rate, alcohol tolerance level, age, and body mass of the drinker affects the time it takes for beer to stay in the system. The gender of the drinker also affects the metabolism of beer. It takes longer to process the beer in women than in men.
Beer can stay in your system for some time. So, be careful when you drink. One must remember to drink moderately and responsibly.
