Beer breath during or after a night out on the town is a form of bad breath that can offend others in social situations. Beer breath lingers until the alcohol is no longer in your bloodstream. In the meantime, you can mask the scent of beer breath temporarily by following techniques to keep your mouth and body hydrated. Keeping breath fresheners on hand in your purse or pocket offers a quick fix to covering up the beer breath odour, while implementing oral hygiene techniques at home provides long-term effects.

Things you need

Drink water while you're drinking beer and after drinking beer to dilute the alcohol in your bloodstream and to keep your body and mouth hydrated. Beer causes dry mouth, resulting in the scent of beer breath.
Eat food while drinking beer, as food increases the production of saliva in your mouth, which decreases beer breath.
Suck on a mint-flavoured breath mint or chew mint gum after drinking beer to cover up any beer breath.
Brush your teeth, gums and tongue with a mint-flavoured toothpaste after drinking beer. Gargle and rinse your mouth with a nonalcoholic mint mouth wash. This freshens your breath by killing the bacteria left in your mouth while fostering good general oral hygiene.
