In brief: Yes it can

Alcohol is an irritant to the stomach lining, which can cause gastritis (and subsequent referred chest pain.
) alcohol also loosens the lower esophageal sphincter increasing the likelihood of reflux esophagitis symptoms (i.e."heartburn").

Look at the cartoon for some causes of chest pain.
See your doctor for evaluation treatment varies with the cause alcohol can cause esophagitis by excess acid production. This can cause chest pain.
