DINER: BC’s Ancient Liquor Laws See New Reforms (And There Was Much Rejoicing)

February 8, 2013 

Well, this is good news. Hats off to Minister Rich Coleman for continuing to move our Byzantine liquor laws into the 19th century (baby steps).

“We are elated by today’s announcement. This is a huge step forward for B.C. craft brewers, vintners, distillers, restaurateurs and publicans. We applaud the government for updating an outdated and archaic law that was impeding progress not only for us but a number of businesses in the craft beer industry. We look forward to sharing the beers which we so carefully craft at Parallel 49 with our valued customers at St. Augustine’s.” – Anthony Frustagli, co-owner, Parallel 49 and St. Augustine’s.

    Can anyone comment as to specific ways these changes improve or make it easier to do business?
