Alcohol is illegal in Qatar, or at least it was when I was stationed there back in 2009. All the alcohol consumed in Qatar was consumed by coalition forces on the base.

This isn't people complaining over Qatar's laws. Qatar agreed to allow alcohol in the world cup venues. They only changed their mind a day or so ago, which places them (and FIFA) in breach of various contracts.

They never changed their minds, this was intended from the beginning. Say yes to whatever they need until it's to late, then impose their backwards rules.

As far as I saw it's fine in a private seting, and when bought from a licensed place. The FIFA Fan Festival will have alcohol.
