Once the foam settled and the Liberal government realized it could make a swack of cash by rejigging Ontario’s archaic liquor laws, you knew change was in the brew.
Thanks to former TD Bank chair Ed Clark, we are now focused on an institution that has largely flown under the radar for decades, the Beer Store.
Perhaps because they were once Canadian owned.
You knew it was just a matter of time before the craft brewers, would want equal opportunity.
Especially because they, along with local wine, started this movement and have been crying for a level playing field for years.
The crafty’s asked the Wynne government to consider allowing breweries to open at least one off-site store apiece and to let them sell one another’s products.
Great idea, but you‘d think they would have asked for even more considering the growth in the industry, and it’s only fair.
But then again, although business must turn a profit, the goals of a small entrepreneur are very different from that of a giant conglomerate.
Which is why the smaller craft brewing industry, is doing so well.
