Craft beers, spirits coming to farmers’ markets

The Honourable Joe Ceci & Alain Maisonneuve (AGLC) celebrate new opportunities for Alberta's small liquor manufacturers at approved Alberta farmers' markets.

Effective Aug.15, 2017, amended policy will bring Alberta craft beers and spirits to approved farmers’ markets alongside cottage wine, already approved to be sold at these venues.

“This is a win-win for Alberta’s businesses and consumers and a positive development for the broader community as we all get a chance to discover and support more locally made products. The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission continues to work with stakeholders and look for opportunities that lead to policies that better serve the industry.”

Alain Maisonneuve, acting president & CEO, AGLC

A part of the AGLC’s mandate is to ensure the province’s liquor industry operates effectively, with integrity and in a socially responsible manner. The Government of Alberta in partnership with the AGLC continues to work with stakeholders and look for opportunities that lead to progressive developments in the industry.
