Amount of beers to get you drunk In general, an average man can drink four to five beers, while the average healthy woman can drink two to four beers in an hour to get drunk. However, drinking alcohol and getting drunk vary depending on different factors. For example, a higher alcohol content in beer can make it drink faster. Yes, two beers can get you drunk, but it depends on your weight, how fast you drink them, and other factors.
For a 150-pound man, drinking two beers in one hour could exceed the legal limit for driving. For a 120-pound woman, drinking a beer within an hour could push her over the limit. Most likely, a can of beer won't legally get you drunk, although you may feel the aftermath of having consumed a bottle of beer. As this experiment demonstrates, the amount of alcohol contained in a non-alcoholic beverage is so low that it is simply not possible to drink enough liquid in such a short time to increase the amount of alcohol in your bloodstream to the point where you feel drunk.
Yes, four cans of beer can get you drunk, especially if the beer cans were consumed in a relatively short period of time. No, it's practically impossible for an adult to get drunk with a non-alcoholic beer with an alcohol level of 0.5% or less. Because commercial beers tend to have a lower alcohol content, it can be more difficult to get drunk with beer as quickly as you would with a hard liquor. To get drunk, you must consume alcohol faster than your liver can process it, which is an almost impossible feat with non-alcoholic beer.
Since being “drunk” is technically considered to have a blood alcohol level greater than 0.8%, most people are unlikely to get drunk over a bottle of beer. To find out if you can get drunk with low-alcohol beer, it's helpful to have a scientific measure of what drunkenness means. Assuming your beer can is approximately 12 ounces, you can expect two cans of beer, or 24 ounces, to not get you completely drunk; however, you might feel “excited” after consuming so many drinks. This means you'll have to drink a lot of non-alcoholic beers to start feeling drunk, and it'll be nearly impossible for your blood alcohol content to reach the limit of 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood in England and Wales when driving under the influence of alcohol.
After consuming more than this amount, most people start to feel drunk and may experience symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. But what types of beer and how many of them can lead you to a state of drunkenness? We'll answer that and more in today's post. For example, a woman who weighs 120 pounds and consumes 5 beers is likely to get drunk if she consumes them over a three-hour period. Undoubtedly, a beer with a lower concentration will ease your nerves and provide the feeling of social togetherness of drinking a pint or two, but the lower level of alcohol means that it's much harder to get to a point where you feel the consequences of being drunk.
However, if you drink a non-alcoholic beer in a group of people who drink alcohol and get drunk, it can generate in your body the expectation of starting to feel that drunken feeling as well. Although some non-alcoholic beers contain up to 0.5% alcohol, this amount of alcohol is not enough to get you drunk or exceed the driving limit under the influence of alcohol.
