There is an attitude in America in particular that if you drink everyday you are flirting with alcoholism. I've been involved with enough alcoholics to know that you can be an alcoholic and not drink every day and you can absolutely drink every day and not be an alcoholic. Heck, I've known alcoholics that don't drink at all and I STILL wouldn't trust them further than I could throw them for all the same reasons I won't trust a drinking alcoholic.
setting "I take a day (or couple days, or weekdays) off" as the metric of whether you have a drinking problem can be a problem in and of itself. If you then have a bunch on weekend days you may well be doing more damage to your body than had you had the same amount of beer spread over the whole week.
You may also be allowing yourself to ignore a potentially serious, life altering, problem with alcohol go untreated because "Hey, I take a couple days off every week!"
If you only drink on the weekends but it is destroying your liver and making your spouse want to run far far away you have a drinking problem.
If you drink a beer with dinner every night without fail, unless there just simply isn't one available. but your family and loved ones can count on you, you are not destroying any part of your body faster than it is capable of renewing itself, and your life is not negatively affected by your nightly beer than it's hard for me to point at you and say "That is someone with a drinking problem".
The message I took away from the article was that, particularly if you are "in the industry" and/or you are a "connoisseur" you should be extra aware of how your drinking habits are affecting your life.
Given the increasingly well documented health benefits of moderate regular alcohol consumption it becomes even grayer. Am I drinking every day because it's good for my heart? Should I worry I have a drinking problem? or am I just relaxing after a hard 12 hour day with a mild natural muscle relaxant that i made myself? (RDWHAHB).
I appreciate his message as I see it and I can only imagine how hard it is when you are "in the industry" to monitor your behavior around alcohol and still meet all the real and perceived social demands that so often revolve around alcohol in that sector of society. Much like working in the bar/restaurant industry or even the entertainment industry.
Of course, if you are trying to reduce your total caloric intake, or your carb intake the beer is almost certainly the second best thing to remove from your diet, right after processed sugars (Candy, Cake, Soda, and Juice type stuff)
This is all my opinion and is not informed by any sort of medical or psychological training and should be taken with appropriate weight.
