In brief: Yes

Itchy and watery eyes are signs of ocular allergies that can be relieved by using antihistamine eye drops and avoiding the triggering sources that cause them. Alcohol consumption is not a common cause for this, but some people are more genetically predisposed to such reactions that cause flushing, nasal congestion, runny nose ; eyes, and even itching of mucosal surfaces, such as eyes and nose.
