Under-25 Liquor Policy
The Under-25 (U-25) Liquor Policy helps reduce or eliminate situations where minors attempting to purchase or consume liquor are not asked for identification (ID).
Because it can be difficult to tell if an individual is 18 years old and therefore legal to enter a licensed premise or purchase liquor, the U-25 policy requires licensees to ask for approved ID from anyone who appears to be under 25 years of age. As a result of setting 25 as the age up to which ID is required, licensees are viewing the ID of more young adults and increasing the rate at which they prevent minors from purchasing or consuming liquor.
The AGLC will continue to work with its industry partners, like ALSA, to help ensure compliance with the policy and that the responsible sale and consumption of liquor is supported and encouraged.
