No easy way : There is no easy way. If you are predisposed to have excess fat on the abdomen you can get rid of it only by two tried and true means. Liposuction or i-lipo. You can find more info at www.Drgrossman.Com.
Good luck from nyc.

Losing weight: Some of the belly fat is under the skin, some of it is inside your abdomen around yout guts. Both parts will diminish with losing weight however, in women the lower abdominal fat and in men the love handle areas have slower metabolism and may persist. For that localized fat, liposuction is ideal.

Healthy Lifestyle: There are no pills that will get rid of belly fat. A healthy lifestyle will. Eating nutritious food, consuming less calories than you burn & exercise will help you lose weight. You also cannot target weight loss to one area, like your stomach. Ab exercises will help build muscle & more muscle requires more calories, so you burn more. In the end, it's all about calories in vs calories burned.

Stop drinking...: Seriously, if your goal is weight reduction, beer is very high in empty, non-nutritive calories. You can't spot reduce, so aiming for specific reduction in abdominal circumference may prove frustrating. Abdominal exercise will certainly tone your 6-pack which you can show off nicely once total weight reduction is achieved. There is no substitute for healthy eating & exercise to reach your goal.
