I think that raising the legal drinking age to 20 will be in effective (people will get booze anyway, just as teenagers do currently), and relying on pricing mechanism unfairly targets the poor. I think it would be more effective to target alcohol adverising, which is prevalent particiularly around sports/music events. Tackling advertising directly leads to reductions in use- just look at smoking.
