Read Toprol prevents liver from breaking down ethanol which can leave formic acid build up in body. True?

I am taking 10 mg of lisinopril at 6 PM daily and 50 MG of metoprolol ER in the am. I enjoy having 1 - 2 Michelob Ultra beers at night and read someowhere that (Toprol) tends to prevent the liver from breaking down the ethanol which can leave formic acid build up in your body and that can be dangerous. Is this tru or am I ok to have 1 - 2 beers in the evening?
