What alcohol is the least bad to drink with acid reflux

What alcohol is the least bad to drink for someone who suffers from Acid Reflux/GERD? I know abstaining from alcohol is often recommended but I'm asking for something to drink in social situations where an alcoholic drink is nice.  I know red wine is terrible for me.

You are right that red wine is not good for you. Stick to clear liquids. I would recommend vodka. If you like mixed drinks, then make sure to add something non-acidic, like tonic water or soda. Enjoy and good luck :)

beer.  I have GERD and I can drink 6 beers before I get sick.  Wine is like one glass and I have a lump in my throat, vodka would kill you, anything hard liquer is BAD for GERD.  I was told by my doctor that Blue Moon is good for the Gerd.  He was right.  Just don't let them put the orange peel on the glass

I drink beer and I was told thats not good with my acid reflux.

Hi Ray, the answer to this question depends on your own body system. Each of us is built differently, Meaning one may get acid reflux by drinking beer while the other may get acid reflux from drinking coffee.

The best way is to experience and find what best suits your metabolism. Just avoid taking what makes your body react, and you will be fine.
