Starting a journal, you're doing everything right!
Welcome! It is hardish to reconcile a love of good beer with Primal eating, but not impossible! Depending on how much you drink you will likely have to cut down. Read through the books and the information on the forum about alcohol, beer, gluten and so on.
I still have a beer every now and then, I just consider it a treat for occasional enjoyment, rather than part of my daily program. If you factor in the calories and the carbs and you are eating cleanly everywhere else, there is no problem with the occasional beer. Enjoy!
As my Grandmother once said, "You could live to be a hundred if you would give up all the things that would make you want to!"
Good luck! Keep posting!
