According to Drugs.com:

Using buPROPion with alcohol may increase the risk of uncommon side effects such as seizures, hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, mood and behavioral changes, depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and panic attacks. In general, you should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with buPROPion.
So I am just going to say no to be on the safe side. Often times mixing anti-depressants can cause weird side effects with alcohol. It’s just not something worth risking. Enjoy the 4th of the July, eat a hot dog, watch some fireworks, but respect your body. Mixing substances can be very harmful. 4th of July in the ER is not fun.

I have combined wellbutrin (low dose) with alcohol (a fair amount) with relatively minimal effects, though of course YMMV. In general it's not a great idea to drink excessively on antidepressants. Start slow with a drink or two and see how you feel, these drugs can change how you metabolize alcohol and how drunk you feel after a few beers.
