* In the ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' series, the Charisian Navy averts this trope. While sailors get beer with at least one meal, and officers are seen having a glass of whiskey with a briefing, none of them get enough to get drunk and drunkenness on duty is harshly punished. Other navies are implied to play this trope straight.

Especially prevalent in works set in the era of WoodenShipsAndIronMen or in the future since SpaceIsAnOcean. [[MoreLikeAFootnoteThanAnythingelse As a sidenote]] the actual ration issued up until 1740 in the [[UsefulNotes/BritsWithBattleships Royal Navy]] was a gallon of beer or a pint of wine or half a pint of spirits per person per day. Admiral Vernon then cut this to a quarter pint twice a day, mixed with water and limes to prevent scurvy, and eventually it became the traditional 1/8 pint "tot" which was officially retired [[http://www.hmstheseus.co.uk/tot.htm in 1970]]. There were some very uncomplimentary epithets levelled at the Admiral responsible and the day is still known as Black Tot Day.

* ''Film/SpiteMarriage'': One of the sailors in the engine room has emptied the fire extinguisher and filled it up with a hidden stash of alcohol. This leads to disaster when a fire breaks out and an unknowing Elmer tries to use the fire extinguisher.

* In ''Film/MrRoberts'', the sailors regularly brew up "[[MilitaryMoonshiner jungle juice]]" from unspecified ingredients in order to while away the endless tedium. And when they're granted liberty on Elysium (after many months of uninterrupted duty), many of them get so utterly soused that they have to be hauled back aboard in a cargo net. As for the ones who can still walk, their antics are so outrageous that the ship is permanently banned.

* ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' has this, naturally. It's remarked several times that British sailors had an unerring genius for getting hold of alcohol in any place and situation no matter how unlikely or inappropriate. Hornblower also prefers to enforce discipline by withholding alcohol rations, since he has a distaste for the Navy's more brutal methods of discipline.
