You might want to check out the book "Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year". She lists lots of herbs helpful for lactation - red raspberry leaf, nettle, red clover, alfafa, blessed thistle and fennel.
Hops is mentioned too - which of course is in beer. I drank hops infusions when I was nursing - it increases your milk and also makes you sleepy (I had trouble getting back to sleep after night feedings). The only problem is it taste AWFUL! Maybe I should have had a beer!
