What about under the age of drinking (which is either 21 or 18) and over the age of a child i.e 13-21 (or 18) –  user5224 Jul 1 at 17:36

I will offer a partial answer to the question. Many states have exceptions to the underage drinking law that for religious purposes it is allowed. Many states also have an exception when on private, non alcohol-selling premises, with parental consent. I got this information here: http://drinkingage.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=002591.
Although this doesn't answer the halachah aspect of the question but practically the problem wont apply in many states.
