I'd forget wine, (except a few sips with dinner or something), but I found that I could handle beer just fine. Just remember--moderation! Mixed drinks (and especially straight alcohol) are harder on the esophagus and stomach. They tend to be more acidic, with fruit juices being a big ingredient.
If you don't like beer, try Magic Hat 9...it has a fruity apricot type taste that you might like. Also, Blue Moon with a slice of orange.
As you can see, I enjoy beer. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to drink it because of the carbonation, but it doesn't bother me.
Have fun at your party!
