Should I be worried about him?

I am worried about my boyfriend. We have been together for 6 months (we were set up) and I knew when I met him that he liked to drink beer. In general I do not have a problem with drinking a beer here and there. I personally do not drink alcohol mainly because I just don't care for the taste (I am convinced it is an acquired taste).
Since the beginning of summer I have noticed that he seems to have started drinking more. All of his friends drink beer anytime we are together (cookouts, parties, camping, etc.). Even when they work together, they will drink beer.
I worry for a few reasons:
1.) There have been a few occasions that hanging with his friends and drinking beer took priority over taking his child home to bed. In my opinion, the priority should be his child.
2.) I swear his uncle is an alcoholic. Everywhere he goes he carries a cooler with beer. And with the utmost respect, he looks like a classic alcoholic looks (sunken bloodshot eyes, looks much older than he really is, etc). I say this because I worry that it could run in his family. I don't know of anyone else in his family that has an issue with drinking though.
I should say that he tends to drink beer with his friends while either hanging out or after work. He occasionally will order a drink when we are out together. So my question is this, does it sound like something to worry about or is it that he just likes to drink beer with the guys?
Thanks so much!
