Beer Importing – It’s Official

March 20th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Well, Free Our Beer is going to get a lot more exciting in the coming weeks and months. As announced here and here, Cecktor Limited, my corporation, has been granted a license to represent a manufacturer from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). What this means is that I am now an importer.  And Garrison Brewing of Halifax, Nova Scotia, has agreed to have us as their exclusive agent in Ontario.

Why this is exciting is one of the reasons I am doing this is to attempt to get inside the system to shed some light on things for Free Our Beer. That, and to do what we can to help bring new and interesting beers to the Ontario marketplace. But you’re going to find out what goes into actually getting new and interesting beers into the marketplace. There will no doubt be lots of tales to come.

So stay tuned, I’ll have some posts shortly of what it was like just to get to this point.  In the meantime, why don’t you order a case of Garrison through the new private order, now open at

    Can’t wait to read the first few stories….
