Beer, wine delivery service being allowed on P.E.I. until year end
Government order-in-council extends permission to Dec. 31
Prince Edward Islanders who have enjoyed having beer and wine delivered to their door during the pandemic will continue to see that service provided for at least a few more months.
The P.E.I. cabinet has approved extending the period during which it's allowing local beer manufacturers, distillers and ferment-on-premises businesses to do home delivery.
The extension is in place until Dec. 31, 2020, according to a recent order-in-council.
Government officials tell CBC News these regulatory changes were made to provide greater access to Islanders during the pandemic.
The change also covers package sales for licensees who are offering home delivery of liquor along with food orders.

- A previous version of this story said package deliveries were for Island-made products only. In fact, package delivery is not exclusive to Island-made products.Aug 31, 2020 8:26 PM AT
