BC restaurants and bars can now sell takeout draught beer in growlers

Apr 7 2021, 9:24 pm

In light of recent provincial health orders, the government of BC has announced growler sales are back on for the hospitality industry.

With this temporary authorization, Liquor Primary and Food Primary licensees are able to sell draught beer in growlers with the purchase of a meal for off-site consumption until June 6, 2021.

This measure aims to prevent waste and help mitigate financial loss for businesses.

This was previously authorization earlier on in the pandemic but was later rescinded on July 13, 2020, after dining services in BC resumed.

“We know it’s a tough time for the food and beverage sector, and we continue to work closely with industry representatives to be nimble and find ways to support the many restaurants, pubs and other establishments,” Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General.

“I also want to extend my appreciation to the businesses that are adhering to the PHO orders and helping to keep British Columbians safe as we navigate this new wave of COVID-19 cases.”

Last week, it was announced that restaurants, bars, and pubs would be prohibited from offering dine-in service, except for outdoor patios, until at least April 19, 2021.
