Strict Alcohol Laws from Around the World

Alcohol LawsIt is evident to those seeking to enter or those who have entered the U.S. beverage market that the U.S. regulations are amongst the most complex to navigate. That being said, there are many other countries that have regulatory requirements that are unique to its neighboring countries or continents. The first of the current seven alcohol laws is Indonesia. The Indonesian government is pushing the ban of alcohol. Blanket bans are already being implemented in Brunei, Libya, and Saudi Arabia.

The second is awarded to the state of Oklahoma. In the state of Oklahoma, refrigerated beer is not allowed to be sold unless it’s under 4% alcohol. The third would be defined by the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, as they prohibit labels that show “a person posed in an immoral or sensuous manner”. The fourth is handed to Australia, in which shots and cocktails are prohibited after midnight. The fifth is in El Salvador. Those who get caught drinking and driving are handed the death penalty, even if it’s your first offence. Sixth is the law in Sweden, which prohibits the sale of alcohol after 7pm. Last but not least, the seventh goes to the law in Malaysia that arrests a man’s wife, should the man be arrested for drinking and driving.
