Why does beer go right through you?!

Question: Why does beer go right through you?
I drink 1-2 beers and to the bathroom I go, why is that?


Drink 1 - 2 glasses of water that fast, and you will have to go to the bathroom too.

It's not that it is beer, but the quantity of liquid you pour into your stomach over a short period of time.

The body doesn't need that much, so it dumps it out into your bladder.

Because beer is a liquid and people tend to drink beer in a high volume, If you drank 5-10 pints of water it would produce the same effect. Its just that people drink beer fast and in a high number that one needs to use the restroom more than usual.

Beer is mostly water, especially mass-produced American and Canadian beers like
Molson, Budweiser, Coors - it could also be your bladder. Did you ask your doctor?

Because it is a liquid and a diuretic.
