There's Traxian Ale on B5, too. Walker Smith had some in the episode TKO.

Re: Science Fiction Liquor

I'm not sure butterbeer would qualify even if we could count HP, since I don't think it's alcoholic. Considering the ages of the characters, I sure hope not!

Back in the 1980s the comic book series The Alien Legion featured a recreational drink called grogh. The nature of this substance is unclear, but apparently it was an intoxicant for all known species-- quite a feat, considering how many diverse alien races (and biologies) were featured! The second volume of this series, with mostly different creators, changed the name to "groph" with no explanation. Possibly a typo.

The Dragonriders of Pern makes frequent references to wine, particularly "Benden red". I know wine isn't exactly up there with spice beer and ambrosia, but it's thousands of years in the future and on another planet, so technically this is going to be wine that none of us are familiar with. Plus, well, it gets mentioned a lot.

Hermoine seemed pretty intoxicated after leaving the pub in "The Half-Blood Prince."

Isn't the drinking age in the UK 16?

Re: Science Fiction Liquor

But I thought the characters started drinking it while younger. I may have that wrong.

Re: Science Fiction Liquor

Can't beat Brivari or hot Jala from B5, recipes for which are in the book Dining On Babylon 5. The wife and I have distributed those at conventions for many years...

(Brivari is a cocktail of rum, brandy, and cointreau or triple-sec. Jala involves blue bols and we have killed many convention hotel room kettles with it over the years, by irreversibly staining them blue...)

Yes, you'll want to check this out in detail. I'm sure it would make for a surprising result for the research. Tanktonese in Alien Nation got drunk on fermented (spoiled) milk.
