Yes: Advil after one beer is perfectly ok. Tylenol (acetaminophen) after drinking not recommended. Do not drive if you drink!

See below: Taking Ibuprofen with alcohol is acceptable as long as you follow the dosing and frequency recommendations. However, there are risks related to irritation of the lining of the stomach and the risks increase if you drink more than recommended and take more than the recommended amounts of ibuprofen. If kidney problems, don't take Ibuprofen unless advise by your doc.

Not a good idea: Even though most of the time it may be safe to take advil (ibuprofen) after drinking , but you have to be aware that alcohol can increase the risk of stomach bleeding caused by ibuprophen.So if you take it and start with black tarry stools or vomiting blood go to the er asap.
