Yes: There does not appear to be a contraindication which is related to this particular medication. Alcohol in the blood stream has some negative effects on white blood cell actions, and if you are being treated for infection, theoretically it is not a good idea to inhibit WBC activities (but this is probably inconsequential).

Can you drink alcohol (beer) while on cefadroxil IP 500 mg (antibiotics)?

No problem: Alcohol in moderation has no effect on this or any other antibiotic. But don't overdo it; heavy alcohol use can impair the body's ability to fight infections.
