I know you have to be 21 in America, at the moment I'm 19 and I'll be going to America over the Summer. How easy is to get served in a bar? It won't be in a massive city or anything because I'm not going anywhere tourist-like. Will not being American work to my advantage or not?

How does anyone live without drinking water for 21 years...

Man that should be illegal
#3
How about this.

Just don't drink until you get back to Liverpool, or go to Wisconsin, you can be served alcohol underage there, legally, as long as somebody of age is in the room.

Probably not a good idea. For the most part smaller towns tend to be more tense about serving minors (at least mine was, town of 3000 people, more bars than churches in town). Usually, though, if you know a local who's a regular they can get you in. I wouldn't advise it though, getting caught is bad news.
#6
it really depends on where you go and how old you look, getting served in a bar or restaurant without getting carded is pretty difficult unless you look to be obviously over 21. You might have OK luck at liquor stores though.

You don't wanna get caught drinking illegally. When in America you're supposed to follow American laws. You sometimes go to jail for having a Minor In Possession of alcohol, and if so that'd be bad. You'd definitely get a fine, and your trip could be cut short.

chances are slim unless you know someone that is a regular at a particular bar.

see, one of my friends went to this one bar like 2-3 times a week. occasionally i would go with him, and they would serve me without questioning my age since i was with my friend, and they trusted him.

but overall your chances of being served are pretty low.


of course i'm 21 now so i don't have to worry about it anymore. come visit me and i'll buy you some booze.
#12
Tell you what's crazy, in the UK you'd have a decent shot in small towns, no chances in bigger towns. Forget it in a liquor store, they ID anybody who doesn't look 25 and yet in a bar or a pub, probably have a decent chance.

Totally the other way round, I'm there for three months though, So I'd like some sort of social life, I wouldn't mind going out and just drinking soda but its premises law anyway so what I drink really doesn't matter.

That also depends on where you go, a lot of clubs and whatnot can let in people over 18, and some bars can too if they have bands or a DJ.

As i said its not a problem to go out and drink soda, but I still wouldn't get into a bar - that's really the issue - how easy is it to get in and just chill with my friends.

some will let you in, and some wont.

if it is a bar/restaurant then it shouldnt be an issue. if it is just a bar though it might be a problem. some places card at the door, at least on busy nights. in that case you wouldn't be able to get in. this makes it easier on the bartenders since they don't have to constantly be checking IDs.

being a minor in possession of alcohol is nothing really. most likely the cop will just give you a warning. it makes it really complicated, legally speaking, if he tickets you because you are a foreigner. but in regards to your question, it's really based on luck. i've been with my dad where he's been carded trying to buy a 6 pack, and i've had 17 year old friends walk into bars without getting carded, sat down and asked for a brew. however, if you're trying to get into a club to pass as over 21, good luck doing that though, they usually card everyone. if you're trying to buy beer from like a gas station, if you hit a good one they'll let you go, there are a number of those around my neighborhood.

It's 18 to drink in the UK and minors who are caught by police get told to pour it into the gutter in front of them. Once they've done that they go on there way. Any given friday or saturday night, find a park and there will under 18s with cider getting wasted. Guaranteed.


The really ironic bit is that i work in a bar, I'm a fully trained bartender who has a license to sell alcohol and usually its only the manager who has one and then all there staff can sell it too - but I have one myself. So its quite annoying to not be classed as mature enough to drink

Assuming that person is your parent and allows you to drink.

Unless you can get a fake ID, you're out of luck bud. Just find somebody over 21 to buy you a bottle and party at your place. Its a hell of a lot cheaper that way and you don't have to drive home from the bar.

Don't do this, you will almost certainly be deported (or worse) if you get caught by a cop with one.

I'm in the same boat as you except I actually live here in the States. You're not going to get into a bar unless you have a decent fake ID saying you're 21.

It's completely pointless and it sucks, but it's life.

Somebody did point out to me that a US bar wouldn't know a UK fake ID was fake, like if i showed my student ID card from university or whatever but then they would probably ask to see my passport, which I can hardly deny having

TC, here's the easiest thing to do.

When you get to America, find the closest college University. Then, walk around campus outside the dorms just talking to people. Some people will be drunk, and they will invite you to come party with them. It's really that simple.

Bingo. Especially since a lot of Americans go ape**** over British accents. Sounds like a lot of win.

Lol... it seems to me most people posting have no bar experience whatsoever.

anyways... two things. Where are you going and what time frame will it be?

Edit: Ok, summer... makes it much easier in some scenarios, hard in other. I'll explain, but yeah... where exactly are you going?

yep, the only form of foreign ID that is legally accepted is a passport, you might be able to get away with a UK drivers license, but that would be really iffy.

ya know, most underage kids just have an older friend buy the booze and then they just go drink at someone's house.... it's a hell of a lot easier, cheaper, and more fun imo.
