Hi...I don't know what meds you're on....but if it's Imuran and pred, please limit your intake. At least DO NOT binge....a few beers over the evening should be fine so that you can allow your liver to process it more easily. I personally would think beer would be easier than hard liquor.
However it affects your colon can depend on how you would normally react to alcohol/ beer, how much you drink and what else you eat. You might have diarrhea for the next day or it will speed up your colon during the evening and you might be inconvenienced having to run to the bathroom. It won't worsen your UC, and If you're having symptoms of flaring, it can exacerbate your symptoms .....an inflamed colon will react more quickly.
Enjoy your birthday celebration...remember that alcohol doesn't agree with everyone and you are on meds that you shouldn't be mixing with alcohol anyway (according to your sig). Reserved moderation.
