In my country you can legally buy beer when you are 16 and drink alcohol under supervision of adults in public when you are 14. If parents give alcohol to children in private is no ones business as far as I know as long as the children are not in danger. So if you give a two year old alochol you end up in prison, if you let a ten year old sip on your beer, nobody cares, if you let a ten year old get drunk however, you are in trouble.
Those are the numbers I personally feel comfortable with, too.
