Question Question about something in HP books.

I have a question. The books mention the drink "butterbeer". Now, I always thought maybe it was an everyday drink, since the students drink it. But in Book 4, Dobby tells Harry that Winky has been drinking a lot of Butterbeer. Harry tells him that it isn't that strong, but Dobby says that it's strong for a house-elf, which is why she was drunk. But how can that be? Is it normal for a child or teenager to have those kind of drinks (although not as strong) in England? I'm from the U.S. and I'm just curious if that's just something that is done there. smile

Actually, its not uncommon for British kids to drink mildly alcoholic drinks... Shandy (usually about 0.5-1%) is classed as a soft drink, and some ginger beers have about the same amount of alcohol... the Famous Five's ginger beers would have certainly been alcoholic to this extent... Dandelion and Burdock used to be as well... all these are freely available to any child in the UK....
