What do you mean by looked at quite strangely, could you put that another way?

Maybe he was an alcoholic clown trying to cheer up the patients, but they weren't into it. Or some other situation where he would intentionally cause them to look at him strangely.

I know some serious alcoholics will try to drink hand sanitizer for the alcohol, relevant?

You said "he" instead of a "A man", so maybe it was a child born into alcoholism. Is age relevant?

(Now for some less negative ideas.)
The janitor from Scrubs, well someone like him. (Definitely fits, for those that don't know, he's a notoriously strange hospital janitor who drinks.)

The man was partying, passed out near the hospital, his friends marked on his face, and he woke up, walked into the hospital without knowing it.

A glass jar? No. It's more a question of number.

What do you mean by looked at quite strangely, could you put that another way? They were visibly surprised.

Maybe he was an alcoholic clown trying to cheer up the patients, but they weren't into it. No. he came as a patient. Or some other situation where he would intentionally cause them to look at him strangely. No.

I know some serious alcoholics will try to drink hand sanitizer for the alcohol, relevant? No. He brought beer, with the intention to drink it (which is quite unusual for a patient in a typical hospital, isn't it?)

You said "he" instead of a "A man", so maybe it was a child born into alcoholism. Is age relevant? No.

(Now for some less negative ideas.)
The janitor from Scrubs, well someone like him. (Definitely fits, for those that don't know, he's a notoriously strange hospital janitor who drinks.) If he is a janitor, he's not an employee of the hospital.

The man was partying, passed out near the hospital, his friends marked on his face, and he woke up, walked into the hospital without knowing it. Good idea, but no.

Was he at the hospital to get a kidney replacement and brought the beer to help him get to sleep, so he wouldn't feel it, and he did not want an IV?

Was he planning to drink all the beer alone? Yes. With other patients? With the doctors? So, no to rest. Was he planning to drink all the beer at once? No. During some time? Yes. Was he planning to stay in the hospital longer than one day? Yes. Was he a subject of medical examination, before which one must drink a lot? No, but OTRT.

Was he performing a test on the effects of alcohol on the body/liver/something like that? No. Was he the only one doing so? So, FA.

Was drinking necessary or helpful to his treatment? If so, the beverage must have been beer or it could work with another beverage? Is any feature of beer relevant?

I think it was believed years ago that beer had a lot of iron in it, so was he drinking the beer to recover from whatever illness he had?

Also was he in Germany during the war, and was drinking british/foreign beer?

Is it something like beer helps kidneys work faster and therefore more toxines can get out of the body?

Yes. I think this is clear enough for a

***SPOILER***

This is the story of a patient suffering of kidney stones who was admissed to a hospital for an extensive checkup to find out the reasons for his condition. While reasons for kidney stones may be varying, it is generally beneficial for the patient to piss a lot. Beer is a good diuretic, and as there may be reasons for a doctor not to encourage his patients to drink a lost of beer, there is a good reason why a doctor would want to prescribe beer as a diuretic: he wouldn't have to worry about the compliance of most of his male patients. So the general practitioner who sent the guy to hospital also told him to drink a few beers every day, and the patient was quite happy about this prescription and ready enough to bring enough of the prescribed drug to the hospital in case they wouldn't be able or willing to supply it themselves...

Congratulations to Redwine for solving the puzzle and cheers to all readers - right now taking more of the medicine than most doctors would want me to, at least given the fact I dont suffer of kidney stones!
