1I don't know about Oman, but in the UAE alcohol is available in bars and restaurants. Generally these bars and restaurants are inside hotels.
There are a few stores which sell alcohol, but you need an alcohol licence to buy from there, and I think you can only get one of those if you are a UAE resident.

2Same in Oman, you can get beer in specific restaurants/bars, and it can be taken away too. Heineken and Carlsberg were most common at about $4-5 a pop at least. Some hotels/resorts will offer beer brought to your room, or may have a small bar where you can go drink. Often, you need to sign a book to get in (often to show religious police that no muslim women were allowed in).
