In legal terms when you are not allowed to take beverages off-premise means that if you buy a opened bottle, a pint of beer, or a glass of liquor/cocktail, you cannot take the drink outside of the establishment (a club, bar, pub, or restaurant). This ensures that the patron and/or the establishment does not get into legal trouble regarding public intoxication (e.g. drinking alcohol out in the streets and getting drunk).

It means you cannot consume the alcohol on the premises where it was bought.
