My boyfriend has been on suboxone for 3 weeks, what will happen if he drinks beer? Will it be ok?

Really depends on how much he drinks. The following link states the interaction between these two:
A beer or two would be fine, though too much can be very dangerous.

Beer mixed with Sub shouldn't make him sick in the way another opiate would, but he still may get some kind of sick feeling.
I used to really love beer. I quit drinking before being on Sub, so I'm not really looking to get drunk. But once a year I go out on my Birthday, and I would like to catch a beer buzz. To my dismay I have found I really can't get a buzz off alcohol anymore. Instead, after 2 beers I start to feel bloated and full. If I persist in drinking a 3rd beer I often will get a sick feeling stomach.
Tell him to realize that he's mixing alcohol with an opiate, and he should think of it that way. The Bupe in Suboxone is a unique opiate, but it is an opiate. Which basically means the beer and Bupe will amplify each other.
If he does it, I'd like to know if get's a high from the beer? I know I sure don't.
