Can augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) be taken for spider bites?

Not unles infected. An antibiotic will do nothing for any insect bite unless it gets secondarily infected. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) would cover most bacterial pathogens that cause skin infections with the exception of mrsa.

This antimicrobial . Is a fixed combination of the pencillin class medication Amoxicillin with a compound that inhibits bacterial betalactamase expanding the activity of the amoxicillin. Read more...
Resistance is futile. Amoxicillin and clavulanate (augmentin) work together to kill resistant bacteria. Some bacteria can make an enzyme (beta-lactamase) that can render Amoxicillin useless. Clavulanate can destroy this enzyme. When these two drugs are combined together, resistance is futile. P.S. Clavulanate can cause diarrhea. Read more...

Is it safe to drink alcohol (one or two beers) while on amoxicillin and clavulanate capsules?

No guarantees. There's no major interaction with alcohol. That being said, when sick (the reason I'm assuming you are taking amox/clav) alcohol can delay recovery as well as interfere with productive rest/sleep. Amox/clav is broken down in part by the liver as is alcohol, so there is certainly potential for harm there especially with excess. I would avoid alcohol until feeling well and off antibiotics.
