I wait until I've been totally pain-free for 2 weeks (including shaddows) and I've reduced my medication to the minimum - then I open the smallest bottle of beer I can find (in the UK usually 250ml) and sniff it (often just the smell can set me off). If nothing happens I take a small sip and wait 10 minutes, if nothing happens again I repeat this over and over until the whole bottle is gone and I'm still OK - this can take up to three hours! It's difficult to do because after that first sip you really want to down the lot!
Wishing you well - and take it easy - it's not worth the hassle for a couple of beers!
