should i be worried that i get up to pee in the night twice after drinking four pints of larger the evening before?
Thank you for your question:

Alcohol has a diuretic effect (increasing urine output). The combination of fluid intake (4 pints) and the fact that this fluid contained alcohol would be expected to significantly increase urine output. I am not surprised that you might have to get up 1-2 time during the night after drinking this much.

If you are having this problem on nights that you do not have any alcohol, then I would definitely make an appointment with your GP.
