No levy for wine, beer made at so-called u-vint, u-brew outlets in Nova Scotia

  • Print

HALIFAX - Nova Scotia's finance minister says the provincial government won't implement a levy on wine and beer made at so-called u-vint and u-brew outlets.

Diana Whalen says the decision comes after consultations to develop regulations on the beer brewing and winemaking industry were held over the last month.

Whalen says she expects legislation will be introduced this spring that will lay out those regulations.

The right to make beer and wine in so-called U-vint stores flared up a year ago, when the province's Crown-owned liquor agency sought a court order to prevent the owners of Wine Kitz Halifax and Water 'n' Wine in New Glasgow from producing wine and beer in their shops.

The previous NDP government later ordered Nova Scotia Liquor Corp. to drop the case in the face of a growing public backlash.
