I, for one, don't want to raise children for whom alcoholic beverages are a forbidden novelty. That seems a recipe for disaster.
That is why I am quite content with our drinking laws here in Britain, of a drinking age of over 5 years old in private, and a purchase age of 16 when bought with a meal or 18 years old otherwise. I would not be against getting rid of the drinking age totally and keeping our purchase age.

18 or 19 sounds about right for drinking/voting/joining the military/signing contracts. 16 or so sounds about right for driving/smoking/sexual consent. Of course, everyone matures differently, so they're estimates.
Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
