How beer affects your body:
First 5 minutes: A few minutes after you take a sip, the alcohol travels to your stomach where it is absorbed into your bloodstream, then it spreads throughout your body, including your brain and around your muscles.
10 mins: Your body sees alcohol as a poison, it doesn’t want to store it and aims to break it down and get rid of it as quickly as possible.
15 minutes: Your stomach is now trying to break down and remove alcohol, it now produces the enzyme “ alcohol dehydrogenase ” which converts alcohol into chemicals including acetaldehyde (which is quite toxic and is a big factor in your hangover the next day), then acetic acid and finally fatty acids and water (the last two the body likes).
It makes you sober then, but if you drink more than your liver can handle, you will get drunk.

> 60 minutes: You will probably have to go to the bathroom, since alcohol is a diuretic, the kidneys drink directly from the bladder, it forces you to need the bathroom more often and dehydrates you. If you stop drinking you may feel drowsy or collapse, even if you fall asleep quickly, due to dehydration your quality of sleep is not good.
12-24 hours: When you wake up, you will likely experience one of the many symptoms of a hangover such as headache, dizziness, thirst, pallor, and tremors, most of which are caused by dehydration. Your body will always try to deal with any excess alcohol in your system.
