Boire is the infinitive form of the verb: "to drink"
It is conjugated like this:
I recommend that you find and use a conjugation site. It is good practice to write out the most commonly used verbs until it comes naturally without thinking. Here's one website: http://la-conjugaison.nouvelobs.com/du/verbe/
The English sentence here is really awkward, in my opinion. Basically "il boit un verre" means "he's having a drink".
