Are beer and a 20 something's body mutually exclusive?

180lbs, 6'1" male - 43 years. Sit nearly all day at computer, get some exercise (try to walk a mile or so in the mornings, but not always possible), usually bike to work 2 days a week (14 miles rt). Walk on weekend usually 5 miles Sat & Sun. Can't bike the other 2 days as that is when my wife rides.
I used to be "tight" and ran nearly everyday in my 20's. Has become harder to find the time over the years with additional responsibilities, tasks, interests - though I'd still like to.
I'd like get rid of my lower back area of fat. Don't have a beer belly - yet. It just seems to be accumulated in lower back. I've tried the low carb diet for quite a while, and I dropped down to 167 at one point but it didn't seem to do anything in the lower back area. I'm skinny everywhere else, not much in the way of upper body.
Yes, I like beer, and am even into homebrewing...I'd hate to give both of these up. Are these mutually exclusive?
Other info: I don't drink soda, eat candy, cookies, ice cream, etc. I do like my wife's homemade no knead bread, any kind of meat or fish, rarely eat fruit. Veggies consist mostly of cabbage or cabbage-related: slaws, kraut. No potatoes.
Short of lipo - is it possible to get rid of this fat?
