Responsibility Programs

Social responsibility is a cornerstone of our business.

One of the things we actively promote at the Beer Store is ensuring strict policies are in place to keep alcohol from being sold to people who are underage or intoxicated.

Through our “We ID 25” program, we require that our staff ask for ID from anyone who appears to be 25 years old or younger. But it’s not just minors that we’re watching out for – we’ll also refuse service to those who appear to be intoxicated. In 2015, almost 3.7 million customers were asked for age identification or challenged for intoxication and almost 50,000 individuals were refused service.

The following items are accepted at the Beer Store as forms of identification:

  • Passport
  • Driver’s License with photo
  • B.Y.I.D Card
  • Military Issue I.D with date of birth and photo
  • Government Issue I.D with date of birth and photo
  • Health Card with photo

Making sure you and those you care about arrive alive.

The Beer Store is proud of our long history as partners of arrive alive DRIVE SOBER® program, which encourages drivers to plan ahead, drink responsibly, use designated drivers, take cabs or stay overnight.

Providing Goods and Services to People with Disabilities.

In fulfilling our mission, the Beer Store strives at all times to provide its goods and services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities. We are also committed to giving people with disabilities the same opportunity to access our goods and services and allowing them to benefit from the same services in the same place and in a similar way as other customers.
