Board raises beer prices

  • Print
THIS year's May "two-four" weekend just got more expensive.

Beer prices will rise $1.25 per 12-pack as of Monday. The Manitoba Liquor Control Commission blames the increase on a recent supplier price increase, a hike in the MLCC's markup and an increase in the fee paid to beer vendors for handling empty containers.

Popular brands such as Labatt Blue and Molson Canadian will increase from $19.25 to $20.50 per 12-pack, including sales taxes and bottle deposits.

Some premium and deluxe-priced spirits are also subject to the new fee increase. Canadian Club 750 millilitres will increase from $22.95 to $23.07, Crown Royal Limited Edition will increase from $34.99 to $35.13 and Courvoisier Cognac will increase from $74.99 to $75.29.

While beer supplier prices generally occur annually, the MLCC said it has not increased its markup on beer or spirits for six years.

The organization said Manitoba will continue to enjoy some of the lowest beer prices in the country.
