Growler Station helps promote Island breweries
A new Growler Station at the Gateway PEI Liquor retail store in Borden-Carleton will help highlight Island beer producers.
The Growler Station is a state-of-the art pouring station that features local breweries such as Moth Lane, PEI Brewing Company, Gahan House, Upstreet Brewery, and Barnone . It is part of the Prince Edward Island Liquor Control Commission’s (PEILCC) work to promote local products and expand its retail stores’ craft beer selection.
“The Gateway store historically has the highest percentage of local sales,” said the Hon. Allen Roach, minister responsible for the PEI Liquor Control 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?”
The new Growler Station is an addition to the store’s “Buy PEI” section designated to featuring local wine, beer and spirits. The PEILCC expects the station to help increase the sales of local product while ensuring that beverage alcohol is sold in a socially responsible manner.
