In brief: Absolutely
5 quarts is way too much and may suggest alcoholism.
Can cause cirrhosis and liver failure if not stopped. Liver failure can result in multi-organ failure and death. He should see a physician to see what damage has already been done if this has been happening for some time. 12 step programs help if difficulty stopping.

This volume could lead to fluid intoxication as well as alcohol intoxication. Fluid/wter intoxication can also become an addiction as well as causing hemolysis of red blood cells.

5 quarts is way too much. The recommended amount for women is 1 glass & men daily is 2 glasses. Too much alcohol over time can affect the liver, increase the risk of liver cancer, cause abdominal bleeding, jaundice, heart and kidney disease he should seek some help and have his liver enzymes checked.

In brief: Yes
One of the most serious effects of excess alcohol consumption of any type is liver damage.
With beer a person also cunsumes a large amount of calories. Different types of beer have variable concentrations of alcohol, but 5 quarts of beer daily (more than a gallon) is too much. Persisting in this practice is definately going to result in liver damage. He needs to cut down.
