I like Ontario’s Brewers’ Retail, “The Beer Store”. Yes I know, I run with a small crowd.
The main reason I like it is the highly effective recycling program they have established. Cartons, caps, bottles, even the beer itself … well I won’t make the obvious joke. But I don’t think this recycling program would be what it is if not for The Beer Store.
Yet I don’t think it always has to be this way. In the past I have not supported beer in grocery stores because of watching too many of those tv crime shows showing the hold-ups. Times changes, and this would be a change for the better.
More access, more convenience, and a bit of a windfall for hard-pressed grocery stores. Uh, but not at the expense of this great recycling program.
