And what if it's a government-run store? In many jurisdictions the state has a monopoly on alcohol sales, so going to a different store simply isn't possible. And going to a different branch of the same store might not be feasible (for example, if it's the only liquor store in your town). I'm not sure the government can legally deny a sale in such a case, any more than they could deny to issue you a marriage licence or driving licence just because they can't authenticate the ID that they themselves issued you.
