If you increase your consumption in calories that have no effect on muscle repair you will have a catabolic effect upon your muscles and you will actually lose muscle (assuming you're not receiving the protein and carbs required by your muscle tissue). Increasing alcohol intake is therefore a BAD idea for muscle gain.
