Troy Econ Lunch - Drinking Age?

In the United States, the drinking age is currently set at 21 for all types of alcoholic beverages.  Contrast this with other countries in the world, where the drinking age for things like beer and wine is set as low as 16!

With this in mind, should the U.S. adopt a policy that allows people to drink at an earlier age?  Or should we maintain the 21 years-of-age requirement?  Or maybe we should raise it even higher?
