Coming Anarchy's Curzon, who currently lives in the United Arab Emirates, has made a blog post and map about the laws concerning alcohol along the Persian Gulf. The map shows that two emirates and Bahrain have the most liberal laws concerning alcohol in the area. There is a saying among Saudis who wish to drink which goes something along the lines of "God cannot see past the bridge [to Bahrain]. The one country missing from the map is Iran which bans all alcohol for Muslims but allows non-Muslims to produce their own for private consumption and Christian Eucharist services.
