First time breastfeeder here....my milk has been really slow to come in. I have been told to drink one can of beer and that will help bring in my milk or increase the supply. Is this true?
Also, if I try this...wouldn't the beer come in thru my breast milk/colostrum? Do I continue to feed my son regular or do I suppliment for one feeding?

Why do you feel as though you are not producing?
Brewers yeast while something that can increase production is not intense enough in beer to help. What I have observed, and this is a personal opinion, seems to show it works because it relaxes mom and allows everything to flow (literally and figuratively). When you drink less then one beer everything should be fine. Supplementing only leads to more problems. If you are breastfeeding ALWAYS feed from the breast or pump at every feeding.
