74 ounces of grain alcohol? Death. 74 ounces of liquor? If it doesn't kill you, you'll wanna die. Wine won't be that far off either. Beer, on the other hand, assuming a domestic (roughly 5% alcohol by volume)... not a big deal. Little more than a six-pack. Body height, weight, fat content, metabolism, and many other factors play a role as to the speed of an individual's metabolization of alcohol. Everyone is different, but roughly, it's an hour for every two drinks (According to TIPS, a bartender/server certification course.)
