Is there any alcohol left in bread

I have just done a German sourdough rye loaf, which I did another one of a week or so before. Due to various factors conspiring against me, the latest one was allowed to do it's thing for a little over 3 days, whereas the previous one had been going for only two days.

I think the taste is much better for it, but my girlfriend says that she thinks the first one was better as the latest one 'Tastes like it's got too much alcohol in it'.
