Unfortunately, the sources we have are few and far between, and also rather sparse in their own right.  For example, we have to rely on things like the story of the Abbot, or Beowulf, or Hardacnut (who wasn't Anglo Saxon himself) in order to try to sketch out a rough image of what life might have been like. My suspicion is that the women were probably drinking like champs, much like the men were.  However, we don't really have sources to affirmatively support it.  For example, we don't have Alcuin talking about the nunneries being houses of drunken debauchery.  ;)
