Four years ago, Kathleen Wynne`s Liberal government kept a promise to expand beer sales in Ontario grocery stores, but signed a treasury deal with the Devil, aka Brewer`s Retail Inc., a.k.a. the Beer Store. (f) all rights or rights of the original company or owners regarding new acts or actions taken by the province or the LCBO after the termination of this agreement, provided that the purpose of the claim or claim is not based on rights that the company and the original owners conferred on the new beer contracts or the 2000 framework agreement or the preferential sales or distribution rights that have or have had the original company and owners under or in connection with other agreements or dwellings with the LCBO or the province (including agreements or dwellings that were concluded prior to the 2000 framework agreement). For clarity, the Corporation and the original owners do not renounce such new actions or measures: in the film Strange Brew, the McKenzie Brothers visit a Brewers retail store that asks for a refund after trying to return a beer bottle containing a mouse (but the mouse was put in the bottle by the brothers). Due to the nature of the scene, Brewers Retail refused to use one of its stores for filming and also refused to allow the use of the name “Brewers Retail”. The filmmakers then built their own replica store and called it “The Beer Store.” It turns out that a few years later, Brewers Retail changed the name of its stores to “The Beer Store,” and they continue to work under that name. Under the Wynne agreement, the beer store had its monopoly protected until 2025 because it allowed the sale of individual boxes and six-packs in up to 450 grocery stores it had set and only at the same operating hours as its own retail stores. If you wanted to buy a case of 24, you had to find another beer store. At the beginning of the 2007 provincial election campaign, the Brick Brewing Company of Waterloo made headlines, claiming that the Beer Store had implemented a number of discriminatory practices and policies, such as restrictions on price advertising to cause lower business sales.
TBS officials denied that their policies harm small breweries and implicitly questioned the timing of the Brick Brewing Company`s statement, indicating that it is unethical for a brewery to use a campaign to develop its own interests.  In addition, Brick alleged that TBS used monopolistic tactics to force Ontario`s largest independent brewer to no longer offer beer in “stubbies” by retaining deliveries of “long-necked” bottles to industry standards. The Beer Store claimed that Brick had signed an agreement in 1992 on the use of the industrial bottle and Brick stated that he had never signed such an agreement. This dispute was settled out of court and the terms of the transaction were not disclosed.  Brick has since stopped selling beer in “Stubbies” because the costs were too high. The province ensures that beer is not permitted to be sold or distributed within the Province of Ontario over the life of the province, except through or through the Corporation, other transactions identified in Schedule 6.5 and New Outlets clauses in accordance with the new beer contracts.
