    Who We Are

    Becoming experts on beer doesn't happen overnight - we've been in business since 1927 and we’ve established ourselves as the leading retailer and distribution channel for beer in Ontario. Our state-of-the-art recycling system has made us one of the most environmentally responsible retailers in the world; nothing sold or returned to our stores ends up in landfill. We are proud to be a part of communities across the province and believe that if you’re going to be part of the community, you should also give back to it. We’ve partnered with many non-profit organizations over the years to raise awareness and much needed funds! The Beer Store offers ownership to all Ontario-based brewers which means there's no other team of Beer Champions who live and love all things beer as much as we do. What is a "Beer Champion?" you ask...a Beer Champion isn’t just a customer favourite or a great teammate. We’re health and safety advocates, environmental stewards, and your local community’s beer enthusiasts. Join us to continue to create a fun and genuine work culture that really feels like your second family!
