Even though this is a real thing (systemic blood yeast infection producing blood-alcohol), it seems to be generally genetic rather than something that can be acquired. The body has ways of shutting down blood yeast infections; the genetic issue is when this doesn't work. Though I suppose some kind of retrovirus could also do the trick.
People with this genetic disorder (which I think is an Asian genotype?) often have developmental disabilities because they get unintentionally drunk whenever they eat high-starch or high-sugar foods. It's hard to diagnose and harder to treat unless you do a drastic diet change.
