The BC Liquor Control and Licensing Act says about home-brew

The BC Liquor Control and Licensing Act says about home-brew
Posted by David Savoie on February 24, 2010 at 4:08 PM    Comments comments (0)

The BC Liquor Control and Licensing Act says about home-brew:

 

55

 (1) A person must not manufacture liquor in British Columbia except in accordance with this Act and the regulations.

(2) This section does not apply to a person producing or manufacturing wine, beer or cider

(a) in a residence, or

(b) in an establishment licensed under section 12.1 [UBrew and UVin companies] for the person's own consumption or consumption at no charge by other persons.

 

A person must not consume liquor in a public place but the Act does not mention anything about carrying closed liquor from one place to another. So, a person could take their home made liquor to a friend’s place to share together.

Saskatchewan's Alcohol and Gaming Regulation Act

Saskatchewan's Alcohol and Gaming Regulation Act
Posted by David Savoie on February 25, 2010 at 11:16 AM    Comments comments (0)

Section 109 of Saskatchewan's Alcohol and Gaming Regulation Act, 1997 addresses the issue of beverage alcohol in vehicles and states:

 

 

Vehicles

109(1) Subject to subsection (2), no person by himself or herself, his or her employee or agent shall have or keep or consume or give beverage alcohol in a vehicle.

 

(2) Subsection (1) does not render it unlawful:

 

            (a) to have beverage alcohol in a vehicle for the purpose of transporting the

            beverage alcohol from the place at which it was lawfully obtained to a place

            where it may be lawfully had, kept or consumed or from that place to another

            place where it may be lawfully had, kept or consumed; or

 

            (b) to have, keep, consume or give beverage alcohol in a vehicle for which the

            authority has issued a special use permit.

 

(3) Clause (2)(a) does not apply respecting beverage alcohol being transported in a vehicle used for carrying passengers for hire or gain unless the beverage alcohol is in the possession of a person who is a bona fide passenger in the vehicle.

 

(4) A person who contravenes this section is guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine of not more than $2,000, imprisonment for a term of two months or both.

 

In Saskatchewan's legislation homemade beverage alcohol is considered beverage alcohol for the purposes of the act and this section would allow an individual to transport beverage alcohol from one place where it may be legally consumed to another.

 

In Saskatchewan, there is no requirement that individuals obtain a permit to serve and consume beverage alcohol in a private place. The interpretation of a private place is contained in section 106 of the Alcohol and Gaming Regulation Act, 1997.

Thomas: I'm pretty sure the Anti-Saloon league had something to do with it too; arguably prohibition (whilst supported and partially enabled by christian-motivated politics) was really brought about by giving women the vote. Oops :P

Also we should shy away from any discussion of religion in here... I rather doubt a mash-up of Dawkins and a history lesson (however truthful) will have any use in the case versus objective comparison to other provincial law.

Dave: A lot of what you're digging up here appears to be related more to distillation (which I expect will remain illegal due to the potential for blinding yourself if you're a dumbass).

Can you find specific instances of other provinces allowing gifting of homebrew, or licencing a function wherein homebrew may be consumed on-site?

I'd look more but I'm ass-deep in work right now :-/

Confused me. See my previous point about not being able to understand legalese :P

You seem to have amassed a rather large pile of evidence that transportation is legal in other provinces... so that's that one supported :)

Also:

viewtopic.php?p=493#p493 (Nova Scotia Liquor Control Act)

would seem to be our gateway to gifting, unless there's some other law specifically prohibiting it...

Well done :)

Is this legislation not available online, i.e. without email? Could make a page in the wiki devoted to the per-province status on transport, (public) competitions, and gifting.

Although the laymans interpretation given in the emails is pretty damn valuable, given how obtuse the law is in parts. We should definitely keep this stuff safe somewhere...

Based on our meeting today we have a supporter in Mr Mike Johnston he seems very interested in craft brewing and appreciates good beer and he also brought up the competition thing such as a license for competitions as many of the other provinces have legislation regarding this so the fight has progressed a bit further and with time and effort I think we can have this law adjusted so our craft can flourish !!!

Cheers

Nice one. Do we have anything in writing, as to the specifics (if any) of what happens next?
