Wine is a mocker, beer is a loudmouth,
and everyone who goes astray by them is not wise. Bible see other translations

“beer.” The Hebrew word is shekar (#07941 שֵׁכָר), and it refers to beer (New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis). The people in the Old Testament could not distil alcohol like we can today, but they could and did drink beer. (There is an excellent article on the subject of beer in the Bible in the September/October 2010 issue of Biblical Archaeological Review magazine).
