In brief: Diuretic

Alcohal is a potent diuretic resulting in frequent urination and dehydration - the best prevention is adequate fluid replenishment: every alcohalic beverage is best accompanied and followed with non-alcohalic fluid.
If your urine appears heavy or dark yellow ("amber"), you're probably "dehydrated.".
