In response to public pressure and the concerns of business owners across the province, the BC government has just updated BC’s minimum drink prices:

There is a new category for draught beer and cider servings 50 oz. and over with a minimum price of $0.20 per oz. ie: the minimum price of a standard 60 oz. pitcher of beer or cider is $12.

The price for any servings smaller than 50oz (ie: pints, sleeves, etc. remains at $0.25per oz.)

The per-ounce price for spirits has reverted back to $3.00 per oz. Up from the current $2.00 per oz.

For further details, please see the BC government’s press release and infographic detailing the changes.
