There are several factors that influence the amount of time it takes for one unit of alcohol and beer to leave any person's body. These factors include a person's age, weight, the amount of food in the person's system and the strength of the alcoholic beverages consumed. A single unit of beer is roughly equal to one half pint and generally one unit will be processed and removed from the body in one hour. There are several ways to help remove the beer faster, in order for anyone to sober up a little quicker.

Consume water, if possible. This will help flush the liquor and beer out of your system more quickly. If you are a little nauseated, skip the water and drink flat soda or ginger ale to help get liquids into your system and ease your stomach.

Eat foods that contain complex carbohydrates, such as breads and rice. This will help absorb the liquor from your system and it will also ease any nausea or stomach ache related to the drinking.

Avoid drinking large amounts of alcohol at once. Consuming one alcoholic unit per hour will help you remove the liquor from your system in a more uniform fashion and help you from becoming inebriated in the first place. Drinking a glass of water between each beer will also help you prevent becoming drunk too quickly.

Exercise. Take a walk or do a few laps around your house. This will allow you to sweat the alcohol out of your system more quickly.
Avoid drinking liquor on an empty stomach. Eat a moderate-to-large meal before drinking to help slow the absorption of liquor, which will also help prevent a sore stomach later.
