Halocho #1619 - What about Havdala this week?

During the "9 days" (which start on Friday) one does not drink wine except on Shabbat. What about הַבְדָּלָה , which is said after Shabbat?

One makes הַבְדָּלָה as usual this week using wine (and spices and a candle).

If there is a small child who can drink most of the cup of wine, then one gives it to him to drink.

If not, then the person making הַבְדָּלָה drinks the wine.

Some people have the custom of using beer for הַבְדָּלָה this week. If one uses beer for הַבְדָּלָה then the first Bracha needs to be שֶׁהַכֹּל נִהְיָה בִּדְבָרוֹ instead of בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָּפֶן.

My Rosh Yeshiva - Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach זצ"ל - always used wine for הַבְדָּלָה and always drank it himself.

מִנְהָג בְּכָל יִשְֹרָאֵל שֶׁלֹּא לֶאֱכֹל בָּשָׂר וְשֶׁלֹּא לִשְׁתּוֹת יַיִן בְּתִשְׁעַת יָמִים שֶׁמִן רֹאשׁ חֹדֶשׁ עַד לְאַחַר תִּשְׁעָה בְּאָב... וְכוֹס שֶׁל הַבְדָּלָה בְּמוֹצָאֵי שַׁבָּת, אִם יֵשׁ תִּינוֹק שֶׁיִשְׁתֶה רֹב הַכּוֹס, נוֹתְנִין לוֹ. וְאִם לָאו, יָכוֹל הַמַּבְדִּיל בְּעַצְמוֹ לִשְׁתּוֹת
