The details of a new 10 year plan which has been hammered out between the Province and the Beer Store will be unveiled Wednesday morning.
And according to The Star, it will mean beer will be available at 450 grocery stores around Ontario a bit sooner than first thought.
6-packs will be sold starting later this fall, and be made available at the same price as the Beer Store and LCBO outlets, and 20% of shelving will be reserved for independent brewers.
Premier Kathleen Wynne is also expected to announce that thousands of bars and restaurants will no longer have to buy their inventory directly from the Beer Store, or be hit with an $8 premium. This is aimed at leveling the playing field with the bigger bars and restaurants, which get better deals, because of free promotional items.
