I'm in my mid 30s, been drinking beer for what seems like forever so why is it suddenly making me sick when I drink it?

Lately after drinking >2 beers out with friends I wake up in the middle of the night with my stomach freaking out and then have to spend the next few hours or day very close to a toilet. It doesn't seem to matter what type/brand of beer, just any beer does this.
I understand that this has happened to others, but to have it just start happening to me with no rhyme or reason? Is there anything I can do to ward this off?
I have no other symptoms of illness, however my significant other has been experiencing the same thing lately after drinking beer which I find a little bit odd as he never had this problem much before either.
It seems to only happen to me after drinking beer in the evenings. A week ago we went to a party and started drinking beer around 12 noon and finished up around 7ish at night. I did not get sick that night and I drank very many different kinds of beers.
I like drinking beer, I don't want to give it up this easily. But right now I'm scared to drink it.
