Hi Tracy. Thanks for your query and for using Health Care Magic.

There is not documented interaction between Taking Metoprolol and Alcohol.
1 - 2beers/day for 2 days will not cause any significant changes or interaction with medications.

So please do not worry.

Hope this answers your query.

Thanks and Regards

Dr Kiran
