could be gastro-esophageal reflux disease. He could also have a hiatal hernia. Anything carbonated, like beer, will make the problem worse. If antacids like maalox do not help the problem, he should see a doctor for stronger meds to decrease the amount of acids he produces and thereby reduce the back splash into the esophagus that causes heartburn.
