Now you can shop for beer and cider at more grocery stores than ever in Toronto.
Starting today, 87 more retailers are stocking cold suds. This brings the tally across the province to 350 grocery stores that are authorized to sell beer and cider – up to 70 of these stores can also sell wine.
“Expanding beer and cider into 350 grocery stores is about more than just giving consumers greater convenience and choice, it also spurs economic activity, job growth, and helps to promote small breweries and cideries whose products will be available on more store shelves across the province,” said Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance in a press release.
The province is touting the rollout of alcohol in Ontario grocery stores as a way to create new sales and opportunities “for small beer and cider producers, whose products must represent at least 20% of the beer and 20% of the cider on display in grocery stores.”
