New Modern Liquor Laws in BC: Here’s What You Need To Know

Hair cut and have a drink, read a book and have a drink, get a massage and HAVE A DRINK!!! The options are endless.

BC’s new liquor laws are good news for local wineries and breweries:

MLA John Yap has got it right! This is a fantastic new opportunity not just for us, the public, but also for BC wineries and breweries.

“Customers will have more opportunities to enjoy some of the world class wines and craft beers that we know and love that are created right here in British Columbia.”

-MLA John Yap, Bill Initiator

Some of BC’s New Liquor Laws:

  • Businesses and special events can apply for a liquor license (eliminating ‘beer gardens’ by allowing the entire event to be licensed).
  • Hotel room service can bring you an alcoholic beverage anytime you want it 24/7.
  • Minors can be in a place serving liquor if their parent or guardian is with them.
  • No food necessary when getting an alcoholic beverage.
  • Home brewers and vintners can serve their creations at licensed events, festivals and competitions.
