As a provincial crown corporation, the Newfoundland Labrador Liquor Corporation oversees the handling and distribution of alcoholic beverages throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Spanning 24 retail stores and more than 100 agency locations, the NLC provides these cities and outlying communities with beverages that help make parties rowdier, holidays more festive, and soccer games actually interesting. Unlike many other provincial liquor services, the NLC blends and bottles its own spirits, and is responsible for dispersing more than 125,000 cases of liquor. Additionally, the shops carry a multitude of wines as well as beer brewed locally and around the world.

Call ahead for reservations.
