I've had a bodybugg too during long shifts in the restaurant and mine certainly didn't show that much. They're known to not be accurate in all situations.

I'd say thats a good way to develop an obsessive food disorder and that sort of compensatory diet thinking where you have to go running every time you eat something "dirty".
Mark, don't stress it. Just track the alcohol like everything else and make sure you hit your daily macros. A beer is carbs too after all so drink one or two during your shifts if you're fine with trading some normal carbs for the beer. I went out every weekend and got drunk on my cut and my fat loss and strength wasn't negatively affected.
There's a in depth article on Leangains about alcohol if you really want to get into the smaller details and effects on body recomposition.
