Hold off a few days: I would hold off a few days just to be sure there are no complications with the piercing. Sometimes they can become infected and may start to swell and you shouldn't be drinking beer if that starts to happen.

Good decision?: Were you drinking beer when you got the piercing? Be aware that tongue piercings can cause fractures in enamel, even when they are made of a softer material. Piercings also can strip gum tissue on the back of your teeth.

No special wait: There's no specific problem with having beer if you have a rogue piercing. There are several problems though having the tongue rings, etc! infections, accidental lacerations and chipped teeth all are likely over time.

Not sure: This doesn't sound like herpes, but could be a reaction to something in beer. A dermatologist may be needed to diagnose this.
