    These are the big points, as far as beer and brewpubs are concerned:
    • Brewers and distillers now can apply to have an on-site consumption area such as a lounge, tasting room or event area.
    • Small- and medium-sized liquor manufacturers will be allowed up to three common ownership and business relationships with licensed establishments located off their manufacturing site.
    So for example a brewery operating in a rough part of Surrey or inconvenient East Van, could open a satellite brewpub in Port Moody. Also, if a brewery started up in Port Moody they could open a lounge or tasting room for the enjoyment of those that live there. With these new laws, the possibilities for some decent beer establishments in the city of Port Moody (and I guess the rest of BC) are endless!!

    Well there is some progress. Good thing BC is near Alberta, right?

    And even better that we're far from Ontario! ;)
