What are the laws in Southern California concerning bringing alcohol onto beaches?

I am having my wedding reception on the beach in California and want to serve alcohol but am unsure if it is allowed.

Some beaches allow alcohol; others do not. Check in with the jurisdiction of the beach where you plan to hold your reception for specifics.

Unfortunately, it is not legal to consume alcohol on the public beaches in California. You and your guests could be cited by authorities.

Currently there is a 24 hour a day ban on alcohol consumption in most city beaches located in Southern California. Private beaches have their own laws.
