    its called beer and you are too young for it, although legally in Scotland if accompanied by an adult you can have a low alcoholic beverage like a beer or cider as part of a meal in a restaurant at age 14.  In America I think the age is something like 21.

    Yep, 21 is the legal age, however there has been push to lower to 18.

    Do people actually stick to that or do the teenagers get people to buy it for them and secretly go off into the woods to drink it?  21 seems rather austere.  At what age are you legally allowed to get married? here its sixteen.

    They do just that and more! They go across the border, buy alcohol from street "vendors". 18, legal marriage age.

    wow you can get married and take on the responsibility to look after a family but you can't buy a beer. That's just crazeeeeeeee.  yeah same here the kids just sneak away. There is just no education on drinking sociably and responsibly, its all negative and punitive.  My goodness George Washington used to have a home made beer with his meal habitually! He even left a recipe!

     

    A clergyman who knew Washington during the presidency recorded that he habitually "had a silver pint cup or mug of beer, placed by his plate, which he drank while dining." Many years later, Martha Washington's grandson noted that Washington generally "drank a home-made beverage" at dinner.
