We know you’ll probably want to grab some clothing and electronics on Boxing Day, but what about some ice cold beer?
It’s hard to argue that this hasn’t been the Year of the Beer (at least in Ontario). First, it was Buck a Beer (which seems to have less participants, now that the hype has died down), then it was extended LCBO and Beer Store hours. After that, we learned that the PC government might do its best to get liquor into corner stores.
Now, it looks like beer aficionados will be able to shop for their favourite brews on Boxing Day.
On Dec. 18, the Beer Store announced that it will be open for business at 100 stores across Ontario on Dec. 26 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

- Canadian Beer Day going virtual this year
- The Beer Store offering new delivery options for seniors
“We’ve all had that worrying experience this time of year when, after we have stocked up for the Holidays, that with family and friends visiting, we might run out. Now, if that happens, our customers across Ontario can come see us on Boxing Day and re-stock the fridge,” said Beer Store President Ted Moroz.
There are 100 Beer Store locations in the GTA, Timmins, Sudbury, North Bay, Orillia, Barrie, Ottawa, Kingston, Belleville, Peterborough, London, Sarnia, Windsor, St. Catharines, Welland, Niagara Falls, Cambridge, Kitchener, Burlington, Hamilton, and Guelph, among other locations, that will remain open.
A full list of locations is here.
As for Halton, the following locations will be open:
- Burlington: 5051 New St.
- Milton: 1071 Maple Ave.
- Oakville: 1431 Rebecca St.
Will you be enjoying some new beer after the holidays?
