Alcohol is usually only a contributing factor to gout.
At this stage it’s impossible to tell how dangerous drinking will be for you in the long run, especially without knowing your test results and so forth.
Generally speaking though, once gout is under control, alcohol consumption need not be much more harmful than it would be for someone who never developped gout. But as long as your problem isn’t under control, you are taking chances by drinking. So provided you are not currently addicted to alcohol, it would be prudent not to drink at all for a while.
