Consumers may notice a slight rise in the price of their beer and liquor just in time for the sunshine.  As of May 1, 2016 there will be new minimum liquor pricing guidelines in effect for all of BC’s liquor retail outlets.  The motivation behind the increase is said to be to defer the over consumption of alcohol.  They are as follows:

Liquor Category                                                                              Min. Price per Litre 

Wine-                                                                                                                $6.44

Spirits-                                                                                                          $27.88

Liqueurs-                                                                                                     $20.39

Packaged Beer-                                                                                            $3.19      

Draught/draft Beer Kegs-                                                                       $1.97

  1. I would be curious to know about how the brewers feel about it. Do they get a bigger cut, or does the government/retailers keep the margin? Also would like to see the public’s response.
