Lots of causes: Assuming you mean drinking alcohol, can be reflux into esophagus, inflammation of esophagus, inflammation of stomach, ulcers, less likely pancreatic issues. If you are eating pizza with your beer, could be gallbladder issues as well. Could even be celiac sprue (gluten/wheat/rye/barley intolerance)other causes as well.

Why does my stomach hurt after drinking water only okay with other liquids example coffee, juice?
