In brief: YES
Alcohol affects everything.
It is a toxin. You have t decide if it is worth the risk and this will be determined by the severity of your disease. It will also affect the metabolism and affect of any medications you may be taking. Safest course is to not drink it. The more severe your sarcoid or more meds you take the greater your risk.

In brief: Possibly
Alcohol and Prednisone both increase your risk of stomach ulcers and bleeding.
Alcohol will interact with methotrexate, another medication used for sarcoidosis therapy. Alcohol is not know to affect the disease itself.
