Absolutely not. Don't even think about it. The carbonation, coupled with the alcohol, will render doxycycline useless and whatever disease you're fighting will win the battle. Doxycycline works in a similar manner to hydrogen peroxide and beer completely neutralizes it.

A couple of glass of alcohol won't hurt, while you are taking doxycycline. Just separate the dose from when you drink alcohol, to ensure that the antibiotic is absorbed properly.

However, chronic consumption of alcohol may cause faster elimination of doxycycline and it may not work as well.
