In brief: Alcohol/sore throat

Drinking excess alcohol may cause a sore throat.
Consuming an alcoholic drink when you already have a sore throat may worsen symptoms. Sore throats often result from a viral infection that affects the throat, tonsils or nasal passages. A dry cough from the infection contributes to a sore throat. Bacterial infections, such as strep throat, may cause painful symptoms, making it difficult to swallow.

In brief: Alcohol

Coffee, tea, cola, peppermint as well as alcohol are associated with increase in reflux.
I would suggest that the beer is allow acid to come up at night and irritate the back of your throat even if you might not be aware of heartburn.
