The carbonation helps release gas from your stomach, if your upset stomach is due to gas, and the ginger in Ginger Ale has been an approved remedy for upset stomachs for centuries. Just make sure the ale actually has ginger as an ingredient, though if it doesn't it may still work, just not as effectively.

But, to be honest, other ginger products would probably work just as well. Crystallized or candied ginger, for example.
