Why does my dad become a **** after 1 beer?

Its like as soon as alcohol touches my dads lips he instantly becomes a ****. He will bring up unrelated issues and look for arguments out of nowhere. We could be quietly watching TV and all of a sudden after a drink he will come up with something to argue with me for. But he only does it after a bottle of beer or a glass of wine. How can 1 beer turn you to an argumentative ******** ?

    Alcohol obviously affects him defferently than it does to others

    Because one of the effects of alcohol is that it 'disinhibits' you and causes you to behave and say things that you wouldn't normally do.

    Has your dad always been like this? Recent events have gotten people rather nervous ..

    he could also have a very low tolerance. Either way try and discourage him from drinking.

    It's not the beer, it's the internal light switch. Whether this behavior is new to you because he's home during lockdown or if he's always been like this, dads go into "dad mode" where they are mature, helpful, kind, etc. A big part of masculinity, which does not include fighting and staring like one troll on here thinks, is just being there. "Dad mode" is alot of hard work.

    What you'll find as you get older, even if you think you're fairly mature now, is parents are just like you. Except they have kids to take care of and a mortgage to pay and a Roth to monitor. What would you do if all that came on your shoulders? When it's time for dad to stop working in "manager mode" "dad mode" and maybe even "husband mode" he just becomes "Steve" "Dave" Mike, whatever his name.

    Dad is your dad, but Steve is my buddy. When working in any of those capacities is over, me and Steve grab a beer, argue politics, tell war stories, and check out the waitress. Again, the beer cracking open is the lightswitch that tells you Steve got turned on and Dad got turned off.

    Only advice I have for you is do not take the bait. 

    Ignore it, walk out of the room. 

    He sounds like an alcoholic. Yes even after only 1 beer.

    He can't handle his booze. It's a mental condition. We call the teens that fall out of bars wanting to fight the world 'Four pint screamers'.
