Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline Forum.
I understand that HIV tests can be a little confusing at times. Drinking beer does not have an effect on HIV tests. A six month post possible exposure test is reliable and accurate at detecting the HIV virus. So to answer your question, for this possible exposure, you can consider yourself HIV negative.

If you would like more information about safe sex practices you can check out [Smart Sex Resource](http://smartsexresource.com/).

If you have any further questions feel free to contact the helpline.
