I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'someone' is the definition.
(I know that supporter is a type of advocate)

'drink the beer?' is the wordplay.
'drink' becomes 'sup' (to sup is to drink).
'the beer?' becomes 'porter' (type of beer).

(Other definitions for supporter that I've seen before include "Advocate" , "sports fan?" , "Strut" , "angel" , "Champion" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
