Consumption of...

Consumption of 20 to 33 fl. oz. of beer: (4.2% w/v) resulted in urinary Ethyl Glucuronide concentrations of 22,000 to 67,000 ng/mL at 3 hours

Ethyl Glucuronide can be routinely quantified in urine for about 20 hours after a single drink of an ethanol-containing beverage. However, it is reported that the compound can be detected in urine for up to 80 hours after heavy ethanol consumption
