I'm drinking whey protein after I work out. Can I still consume alcohol? Does it have any side effects?

In brief: I see no conflict

I see no conflict between protein shakes after workouts and alcohol consumption.
But it's a matter of degree. How much alcohol we talking about? Because moderate alcohol intake is pretty safe. But excessive alcohol consumption definitely has side effects, including nutritional depletion.
