In recent months, I ve had a problem when drinking my first beer. Often times it causes me to vomit but it s nothing but foam , but after the first few drinks it tends to stop. Is this a chemical reaction causing excessive foaming in my stomach or what?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
You had beer for first time and vomited, this happens in most people first time.
Drinking alcohol heavily can irritate your stomach's lining, causing nausea & vomiting. This is a protective mechanism your body uses to warn you to stop taking in toxins. The best cure for this problem is to stop drinking

You might also had gastritis, which have induced vomiting. But if this happens every time you consume any alcohol products then its need to be evaluated and its better to visit a doctor.

My suggestions is Try not drinking alcohol, smoking, or taking any nonsteroidal antiinflammatories like Advil/ibuprofen and see if your stomach calms down
