IMHO Scouts and Scouters should not be involved in the serving of the
beer. I have nothing against the consumption of moderate amounts of
adult beverages, but this involves the public image of Scouting. Can you
work it out so that you can serve food and sodas (pop) and the beer
garden is served from another location by a different group, or by
volunteers from the company staff?
