People in Nova Scotia can now buy beer made in-house at brew pubs to take home.

People in Nova Scotia can now buy beer made in-house at brew pubs to take home.

Under changes to the province's Liquor Licensing Regulations, customers can buy beer from the pubs to take home instead of having to purchase it from an adjacent but separate storefront.

A spokeswoman for the provincial government said brew pubs can sell beer for off-site consumption from when they open until 10 p.m.

Beer is allowed to be sold in sealed 1.8 to two-litre bottles, known as growlers.
