(Feb. 12/14) CRFA successfully lobbied Service Nova Scotia Minister Mark Furey to allow brew pubs to sell their growlers of fresh beer directly to customers for take away. For years, the province’s brew pub operators were burdened with unnecessary red tape that required them to have a separate, non-liquor licensed area to sell their products to go.
CRFA is confident this change will allow the industry to grow sales while better meeting customer needs.

“This regulatory change will reduce unnecessary red tape and help Nova Scotia small businesses grow and prosper. At the same time, it will help quench our customers’ thirst for high-quality, locally made products.”
