Change number of html form fields based on a form field selection (hide or show form field)

I have this html form.  I'm using javascript to change the 'Select Quantity' field based on the 'Type of Alcohol' field.


When 'Spirits' ('alcohol_type') is selected I want to show:'cost','quantity','percentage',spirits_type','outside_country' fields.

When 'Beer','Spirit Coolers', or 'Wine Coolers' ('alcohol_type') is selected, then I would like to only show:
'cost','quantity','percentage' only and make the others disappear.

When 'Cider,'Sparkling Wine', or 'Wine' is selected I want to only show:
'cost','quantity','percentage', and 'bottled_in'


I have included the html form and the javascript function

This is the code for the 'bottled_in' select statement

            <select name="bottled_in">
                  <option value="">Bottled In?</option>
                  <option value="Canada">Canada</option>
                  <option value="United States">United States</option>

Thanks for responding so quick.  When I try it in your example webpage, the quantity doesn't show?

Got it to show the quantity types, but it doesn't show all of the choices. For example, for Spirits, the quantity choices are only 375ml, 750ml, and 1 Liter.  It doesn't show the other choices.
