Province Introduces Amendments to Allow Broader Liquor Sales

Broader Liquor Sales

WINNIPEG - The Province has introduced new legislative amendments that will expand the sale of cider and spirit based cooler to hotel beer vendors.

Currently, hotel beer vendors are restricted to selling beer and malt-based coolers, and can only sell spirit-based coolers and ciders under certain conditions such as being located a specific distance from a liquor vendor.

The proposed amendments would permit all hotel beer vendors to sell cider and spirit-based coolers, in addition to privately distributed beer.

In addition, MBLL plans to extend permission to private rural liquor vendors to sell single-serve domestic beer, previously only sold by hotel beer vendors and some rural liquor vendors granted an exception.
