hi David,

here in Berlin the fablab has drinks including beer for sale. but there are
member fees and people pay to use equipment so there isn't generally a
problem that anyone oversteps bounds or just hangs out and gets drunk
without being there to work on something. also at C-Base here in Berlin,
same thing i think.

does your space have a code of conduct? that could be useful to write-up if
not, so everyone knows the rules of things and can make responsible
decisions. :)
