I drank a half bottle of beer and it was downhill from there. I was shocked to find out (after reading this page) that alcohol contributes to heartburn. This is the first time that a bottle of beer caused this effect and I will monitor it in the future.

Chocolate, tomato products, tea, coffee, fried foods, and citrus fruits, all make heartburn pain worse.
