Community Involvement

The Beer Store is proud to be part of the community. Your community.

We believe that if you’re going to be part of the community, you should also give back to it. We have a number of charitable organizations that we partner with, to help raise awareness as well as much needed funds.

Each of our retail locations has coin boxes that will allow you to make a donation to one of our charitable partners. All of the funds that we collect go to those partners, which include the Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Day Campaign, arrive alive DRIVE SOBER® campaign and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.
