I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with ubrew wine and liquor laws in BC and if anyone found a way that it can be served at a wedding?
My grandparents have made the wine for us as a gift and now we are worrying that we won’t be able to use it!
We thought maybe by calling it “wedding favors” that might work?
Thanks to anyone that can shed some light! I would hate to tell my kind grandparents that we can’t use their gift!

The major consideration would be where the wedding is. If you’re in a public space and need to buy a liquor license or are using a licence from a hall or hotel you will not be able to “provide” liquor from anywhere other than a BC store. It will not matter if you give it away or serve it up. In AB, every bottle in the location has to be on a till receipt attached to our license if an inspector comes. It kind of screwed up my plans too because I have a wonderful mead, beer and wine maker I could have enlisted.
If the wedding is a private residence like a home you can do whatever you want and that might be a loophole you can use.
It’s possible the wine could go to the bridal shower, the bachelor party or maybe be given as gifts if you do a day after gift opening at a residence? You can have it sent to hotel rooms or even delivered to locals with a thank you note after the fact if that is logistically possible?
