ine, wine and beer or beer made by the person in the person’s residence, and a person who is not prohibited from consuming liquor may consume that wine or beer in that residence.
I did confirm with the provincial GOVT that this mean I am not allowed to take homebrew outside of the place it was producedHere is an email i received to me this is complete BS but I need todo somethign as based on the law I am not allowed to transport homebrew/wine from my home to competitions samplings with the homebrew club makes me very angry and in the letter below it states they do not enforce this law but its still there and as a homebrew club one of the stipulations is we abide by the NB Liquor laws Hello Mr. Savoy, As per your phone inquiry to the Director of Licensing and Registration and our conversation, here is some information regarding the Liquor Control Act. I’ll also be providing this information to the Daily Gleaner reporter. The provisions in the Liquor Control Act are in place to protect the health, safety and security of people. The Act allows the consumption, possession, and transportation of liquor only as authorized in the Act. Many provisions are there to ensure quality control of alcoholic products available to the public and to restrict the sale to those who are under the legal drinking age. The Act does only authorize home brew to be in the residence of the person who made it. The department has not been made aware of anyone who has been charged for transporting home brew. The department does not actively enforce this provision. There are no planned changes to the law as it relates to home brew at this time. Many of the provisions in the Liquor Control Act, including the ones regarding home brew, have been in place for decades. The department continually reviews its legislation and monitors what other jurisdictions do, and is always welcome to suggestions from the public if someone has an issue with this provision. As for U-Vin/U-Brew establishments – the government introduced Bill 22 amending the Liquor Control Act in December 2008, which will amend the Act to allow for U-Vin/U-Brew operations, as the Liquor Control Act had no provisions for this service. This law will come into force in the coming months, once the regulations are complete. When it does, a person will be allowed to transport liquor from the U-Vin/U-Brew establishment to their residence. But beyond that, alcohol from a U-Vin/U-Brew will be subject to the same regulations as home brew. I hope this answers your questions.
