There was this article in MIT's Technology Review a couple weeks back

 From what I've seen on the few alcohol sites I've visited it goes a step 
further - they display a "If you're under 18 leave now". I don't know if 
that's voluntary or legally enforced though.

And if you get across to the US remember it's 21, not 18.
