Ontario adding Beer and Cider to 95 additional grocery stores

Ontario’s Ministry of Finance said today an additional 95 grocery stores will be eligible to sell beer and cider – 200 are currently licensed in Ontario and a total of 450 will be eventually.

“We’re expanding beer, cider and wine sales in Ontario. Small producers are benefiting from greater exposure in the marketplace, while consumers are enjoying more choice and convenience. By working together, we’re enabling opportunity for local businesses and communities to experience more craft and VQA products,” said Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance.

“Making local craft beer available in 95 more grocery stores is great news for local craft beer. OCB applauds the Wynne government for its continued support of Ontario’s local craft beer industry by increasing the choice and access to our outstanding product,” said Scott Simmons, President of the Ontario Craft Brewers. “Local craft beer in grocery stores has been successful and we commend the government for continuing to expand this program as a key part of the continued growth of the OCB and the craft beer industry in Ontario.”

Approved grocery stores who bid in this round can begin stocking beer and cider in April 2018.
