Depends: You need to be evaluated by a doctor to determine if it is an allergic reaction or not. It is odd for a reaction to occur on one arm only, see an allergist.

Commonsense: Pl donot drink beer, very imp. See an allergis to see if hops or baley show any reaction ? It can be na- benzoate as preservative. Nothing is 100% conclusive. So do not drink beer, why torture the body.
