Having grown up myself between a wine-growing region (with wine cellar tours as early as in junior high) and drinking age 21 - I strongly advocate for liberal legislation and teaching a good drinking culture.
Restrictions only lead to setting too much store in the quantity of alcohol intake - when it is actually the quality the focus should be on.
Then there's Germany, where the limits on alcohol are graduated - at 16 you can order beer or wine, but you have to wait until 18 for spirits!

Which means that German youth learn to drink before they learn to drive (driving only starts at 18), which seems quite sensible in many ways....

I can't agree more with your statement - "I strongly advocate for liberal legislation and teaching a good drinking culture"
The drinking age in Venezuela is 18 and not really enforced. I don't remember if they have a different age for beer.
When I came to college, I had just turned 18, I could not understand why people drank to "get drunk".
Where I came from: Rum, whisky and colorful drinks were ordered to be sipped enjoyed not chugged down to get drunk.
