At a bare minimum, it would mean "no kegs, use a mug instead of a
can, no blatantly modern labels on bottles." For some sites (such as
church or scout camps) it might even mean "if you bring cans or
bottles of booze, take them with you when you leave--we don't want
them in our trash."
If you want to get a little more intense, then go for the wineskin,
period-style bottles (probably ceramic rather than glass, because
glass was *expensive* throughout mist of our period) maybe a drinking
horn, goblet or leather jack (depending on when and where your
persona is from) rather than a glass-bottomed fake pewter mug.
