You can cultivate your own inebriation and spend a few days in the drunk tank without, for all that, having consumed a single drop of alcohol! A fermentation vat or a pocket of beer secreted within your intestines is something that could actually happen if your organism one day suddenly sets up as a traditional brewery. The effect, far from being fun, would be a serious handicap in terms of physical health and social behaviour.
