SK. Restaurants are now allowed to sell alcohol for takeout and delivery

The Saskatchewan government announced Monday licensed restaurants can once again serve liquor for takeout and delivery.

The 900 restaurants in the province will be able to to provide beer, wine, mixed cocktails and growlers through delivery or takeout without getting a separate permit. 

Earlier during the COVID-19 pandemic, the province allowed restaurants that didn't previously have an off-sale licence to offer off-sale alcohol.

That changed when all public health restrictions were lifted on July 11. Restaurants and bars were no longer able to sell off-sale alcohol. 

While restaurants will be able to sell alcohol with food orders for takeout/delivery, they will not be authorized to operate as full scale liquor retailers — they cannot establish retail displays or have in-location shopping for takeout alcohol.
