Iqaluit residents will soon have their say on plans to open two breweries that have been proposed in the capital. 

The Nunavut Liquor Licensing Board will hold a public consultation on September 9 at 7 p.m. at the Cadet Hall. 

The board is considering two applications for brewery permits: one from the Nunavut Brewing Company Limited and one from the Iqaluit Brewing Company. 

Both companies will make presentations at the meeting. 

The deadline to file written submissions to the board in advance of the hearings is August 31. 

Comments should be filed with the board's executive secretary.
