I knew someone would ask this eventually, the rule is in the Ansteorran
Seneschal's handbook page 9. 
It has been there since Sir Fredrick was Kingdom Seneschal.  It is also in
the Corprate Treasurers handbook.
Up till now we have not seen the need to put it into Kingdow Law, but it is
under consideration for this next release.
The Official Ansteorra policy remains no alcohol with SCA funds.

Deputy Kingdom Seneschal for Ansteorra
