Abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate the alcohol-culture within the restaurantbusiness.

To answer these questions we did a both quantitative and qualitative study. We handed out 50 questionnaires in 16 different restaurants. From these we choose three people to interview. The study shows criticism against the Swedish system for regulation of distribution and consumption of alcohol and support for more liberal alcoholpolitics. The results also show that personnel in the restaurantbusiness drink in a different way than what is common in Sweden. They often drink at several occations every week, rahter than only at weekends. Drinking during work-hours was not frequent, but an after-work-beer was common. From time to time they get drunk together, but we found no evidence that this behaviour is more common in the restaurant business than in the swedish society at large. Still the personnel define themselves being at risk for alcoholrelated problems. (Less)
