Question:

My friend had a stroke on last month and this month he had a seizure. Is it possible that the beer that he consumes during the day play a part in him having a seizure?

Stroke is one of the known causes of seizures and epilepsy. It may be more likely that the cause of your friend's seizure was the stroke and not alcohol. Be sure your friend has been evaluated by a health care provider regarding the recent seizure.
