Less red tape means more ways to enjoy craft liquor

A newly created taproom licence will permit manufacturers to offer food service along with events and entertainment. These are often referred to as taprooms.

Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis policies have been revamped to add the new licence category so it is easier for liquor manufacturers to host events and engage more fully in their local communities.

“When we consulted with Alberta’s manufacturers, it was clear that our liquor licence classes needed to be updated to reflect the needs of this very dynamic industry. Manufacturers have more options in how they welcome customers to where they produce their product and offer event and entertainment hosting service.”

Alain Maisonneuve, acting President & CEO, AGLC
