Alberta amends beer mark-up policy
Food in CanadaFood In Canada Regulation Beverages Alberta beer policy
Big Rock Brewery Inc. announced that the Government of Alberta and the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis agency has amended the mark-up policy for Alberta beer sales, which is anticipated to significantly reduce the corporation’s overall beer tax and provide the corporation with a pathway for sustainable growth moving forward.
The new Alberta beer mark-up policy extends the reduced beer mark-up to producers, such as Big Rock, with a worldwide annual production of fewer than 400,000 hectolitres by implementing a graduated scale of up to $0.80/litre. Based on this revised framework, Big Rock anticipates its mark-up on Alberta beer sales will be reduced to $0.64/litre from $1.25/litre as of Sept. 13.
