Can alcohol drinks be purchased in Kosrae

I have heard that Kosrae is a very Christian location. Are alcoholic drinks like beer and wine sold anywhere on the island or do I have to bring in duty free from the mainland.

Yes, alcohol drinks can be purchased in Kosrae. But, on Sundays, it is against Kosrae law to sell alcohol. If you have some in your room, you can drink alcohol, on Sundays, as long as it is not in public. So, Monday-Saturday you can purchase drinks. It is also against the law, on Sundays, to fish or collect shells. You cannot scuba dive, but you can snorkel, as long as men wear a shirt and women wear modest clothing.
