beer Store 1

 beer Store 2

In the Province of Ontario the sale of beer was legislated in 1927 at the end of Prohibition to be controlled by the breweries.  As a result a group of breweries owned the distribution rights for beer in the province and sells it through a network of company stores.  The retail outlets were known as "Brewers Retail" and later the name was changed to "The Beer Store".  The purpose behind the maps was to help the consumer find a store to quench his thirst.  Sadly, the practise of selling beer to the public in Ontario is still controlled and consumers can only purchase beer in a "Beer Store", a manufacturer's licensed store or a Government Liquor Store.
