Drinking Age

Just a quick question if anyone can help!

I'm 19 but my boyfriend is 21. I've read about the drinking age but I was wondering if people found they were IDed a lot while out there or if most of the bars are in fact 20+ to get in.

Thanks :)

Hi i am going to sweden next week and we have been told that they are not great drinkers. So i dont think they will be strict as they dont have the alcohol problems we have. But i can't be sure.

About Swedes not being heavy drinkers, I guess you haven't been out that mych in Sweden. This is vodka country ;-D

The legal drinking is 18 but lots of clubs have different door policies. You have to be 20 to buy alchol at Systembolaget.

Irishbaby as Ankix said; "not heavy drinkers" - where did you hear that? The Swedes love to drink themselves into oblivion most Fridays and Saturdays. :-))
