Growler sta­tion at P.E.I. liquor store aims to in­crease sales of lo­cal beer

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A state-of-the-art pour­ing sta­tion at Bor­den-Car­leton’s Gate­way Vil­lage will help pro­mote P.E.I. brew­eries.

The new “growler sta­tion” has been in­stalled at the Gate­way liquor store and fea­tures lo­cal beer pro­duc­ers like Moth Lane, P.E.I. Brew­ing Com­pany, Ga­han House, Up­street Bew­ery and Barnone.

It’s part of the P.E.I. Liquor Con­trol Com­mis­sion’s ef­forts to ex­pand its stores’ craft beer se­lec­tion.

“The gate­way store his­tor­i­cally has the high­est per­cent­age of lo­cal sales,” said Allen Roach, the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the liquor com­mis­sion.

“With many of the Bor­den-Car­leton store’s cus­tomers be­ing tourists, what bet­ter place is there to in­tro­duce a new growler sta­tion giv­ing cus­tomers ac­cess to a larger se­lec­tion of lo­cal prod­ucts?”
