The acidic pH of alcohol beverages and tea is known to trigger GERD symptoms in people who drank regularly. Men and women who participated in a study exhibited symptoms associated with GERD. Some people can experience painful Gastrointestinal symptoms if they consume acidic beverages regularly. Even if you do not experience such adverse effects, it is still advisable to adhere to moderate caffeine and alcohol consumption.

Beer production is a result of the fermentation process. The main product is ethanol (alcohol). That alone is not the product of this chemical reaction; organic acids are produced, such as succinic acid, acetic acid, and other organic compounds. 

A series of beer referred to as sour beer styles have low pH; some popular sour-style beers are Belgian Lambic and Berliner Weisse. The beers with 100% Barley malt lager beers have a pH between 4 and 5. The ales, allow the yeast to ferment at warm temperatures.

Ales have malted tea and barely and is widely-produced by homebrewers. The fermentation takes place for a short period over the malted tea.

In some cases, the yeast is provided with an acidic environment to encourage growth. 

Although we know beers to have a high amount of organic acid, that alone does not contribute to the ph. As a carbonated beverage, acidity is caused by the carbonation process.
