See your doctor: Alcohol can cause inflammation of the prostate, and that may be the cause of your symptoms, but only a physician can diagnose this, and make sure you do not have some other problem (urinary tract infection or sexually transmitted illness). If you are drinking more than 2 beers/day, or 14 per week, or 5 or more drinks at one time, this is unsafe drinking and you should cut down or stop.
