In this chapter we discuss the role of groups on behavior in scenarios of moderate alcohol consumption. We outline the role of group monitoring processes in the potential amelioration of the deleterious effects of moderate alcohol levels on group decision making. We discuss the theoretical basis of these findings, the and the different contexts that they apply to. Furthermore, we provide detailed information on methodological issues when administering moderate doses of alcohol to small groups. We highlight unresolved questions and findings in the field and make suggestions for further research both in helping us to understand more clearly critical factors in alcohol consumption and group behaviors but also in helping us to apply this knowledge to questions around the night time economy.
