Salam Alaykum,

There are a few Ayahs in the Quran that speak about Alcohol and drinking for instance (2:219):

They ask you about wine and gambling. Say, “In them is great sin and [yet, some] benefit for people. But their sin is greater than their benefit.” And they ask you what they should spend. Say, “The excess [beyond needs].” Thus Allah makes clear to you the verses [of revelation] that you might give thought

Also,
Kindly refer to the link below for rulings in Alcohol 
 
If I understood correctly, he is still drinking alcohol? 
If he is, and you’re sure it’s not the non alcoholic than you must mention to him and clarify it with him
You can also show him the above link to tell him that drinking alcohol according to Islamic law is Haram. 
If you fear that this approach will be a dent into your married life than you may speak to an Aalim or an elderly who will listen to you and who your husband will listen to and help you resolve this indirectly.
 
Fiamanillah
