what the hells that supposed to mean

"flesh meat" just means meat but back in the day the term was used to distinguish it from other "meat" since "meat" just meant "food" (still survives in the phrase "sweetmeats" which are not flesh meat)

Anyway, St. Thomas Aquinas explains that one reason when we fast we abstain from flesh meat but not alcohol or fish is that abstaining from flesh meat helps us reduce concupiscent impulses (I think mostly related to lust and wrath).  Alcohol obviously affects these but in the short term, and in teh long term might even decrease them.
