Yeah it is just "the done thing" between our group of friends / family.
Whoever is hosting supplies beer and wine and if you want something else its BYO.
We have spirits at our house as well so people generally just help themselves. We also enjoy mixing our cocktails.
At both of our sons birthdays so far there has been alcohol supplied by us and both sides of the family and close friends have enjoyed it.
No friends from kindy / school just family / close friends.
If i had school / kindy friends I would tone down the drinking/alcohol.

everyone we know drinks, and while we always have beer, wine and spirits on offer at our house everyone tends to byo as well.
if we went somewhere else, we would byo too.
we have alcohol available at kids birthdays. i don't see it as bad, it's not like we are forcing anyone to drink. those that do, have a few drinks and behave responsibly. hubby is a chef and i teach hospitality - to us it wouldn't feel right not to have alcohol.

I would definitely expect alcohol at an adults get together in the afternoon/evening and would notice if there was none. I don't expect hosts to provide it though.
I have been to one dry wedding (religious reasons) - one of DHs friends. We were only dating at that stage and I had to sit with my inlaws by myself all night as DH was best man. Longest night of my life!!!!
