The Weston Superstore will be carrying beer, according to Laura Albanese’s office. Half of the brews will be from local small brewers, too, which is unusual.
Weston is lucky; only 58 groceries are getting beer in all of Ontario–though hundreds will eventually be added. We won’t get any luck at the checkout, though: the price of beer will be exactly the same.
The sale of beer in groceries ends a 88-year monopoly held by the private consortium that owns The Beer Store.
