Beer Toronto grocery stores

You can now buy beer at Toronto supermarkets

After years of speculation and discussion, beer has finally landed in a select group of Ontario, and Toronto-area, grocery stores today.

However, don't expect a massive selection. The beer is limited to two end-aisles. One carries major brands such as Corona, Heineken, Budweiser and Canadian. The other stocks craft beer like Amsterdam, Steam Whistle and Lake of Bays Brewing Company.

Remember, you can buy only six-packs, as well as individual cans and bottle, from supermarkets. Up to 60 Ontario grocery stores are expected to starting selling beer before the end of the year; 25 such stores will be in the GTA.
