Destinations that allow open carry... of beer

Was cruising the net this morning and came upon an article about Savanna Georgia and how you can stroll around while enjoying a cold one. New Orleans is similar that way. Are there any other cruising destinations around the world. Where you can do this? Heck, perhaps it's the norm outside the U.S.

Regards,
Brad

The US, with it's history of Prohibition and Puritan roots, is an exception rather than the rule when it comes to alcohol consumption. Even in Germany the McDonald's has beer on its menu (somewhere between the McShake and Coca cola).

Germany may not be the world rule on beer consumption either.

You will find that throughout the UK there are local bylaws banning consumption of alcohol in public places-not everywhere but becoming ever more so.
Personally the sight of someone wandering down the street with a can or bottle of beer in their hand means trouble! Dont mind in the park;on the beach ;at a festival; in the marina etc but on the street!

Key West. *Officially* there is an open container law. But it's only enforced if you're being a JERK.

While there for KWRW last year a couple of us went out on a dive boat that served beer/drinks on the way back to the harbor. As we pulled in they made an announcement something to the effect... "and let us remind you of Key West's open container policy... so be sure to top off your drink before you leave!"

KW cops do enforce open GLASS containers though. I was nicely told to throw glass bottle away while friend was ignored with can.

The safest place for open container carry; Is from your Frigerator to the couch where you plop down to watch a game or two. And if you are smart you will get one for your significent other also.

Even smarter is to have your significant other get one for you!
