Storybrooke’s Drinking Age: What is it? Is there one?


In episode ‘Skin Deep’  Mary, Ashley and Ruby and went out on a ‘Girls Night’

In Price of Gold, we first met Ashley (Cinderella ‘Ella’) In Granny’s as a pregnant maid. Emma asked how old she was Ashley was.Ashley is 19 years old  at the time.

We do not know what the drinking age is in Storybooke. But this is something to consider;

We are all aware, that Storybrooke is in a ‘time warp’ modern day things like cell phones are slowly showing up without warning. We do not know what year this is in, but lets assume that Storybrooke is set in the 1980’s.

In the 1980’s in many parts of the USA, the drinking age was 19 years of age. Why was it changed later on? this is because why:

Too many drunk driving accidents and deaths involving teens. MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)  was responsible for the big push. the federal government got behind the law with funds for the highway in all of the states that agreed to increase their drinking age.

Do you think that this is promoting under age drinking? or does the reason above make sense?

What year do you think Storybrooke is in?

Do you think think Storybrooke should have a drinking Law?

We discussed this on a recent podcast episode. Listen here
