Thank you for the query.

Acethaminophen (Tylonol) is quite safe medicine, however when used reasonably. It is metabolized by the liver. The danger dosage is about 6 g (12 tablets) taken at once so you seem not getting even closer to this dosage. However, the alcohol is also metabolized by the liver and connecting high dosage of alcohol (two beers seems to be safe) with this medicine can bring dangerous side effects.
So you should e fine, however you should not connect this two substances.

Hope this will help.
