Liquor Control Commission headquarters in Charlottetown
Beer drinkers are in luck for Sunday’s gold medal hockey game between Canada and Sweden.
The P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission is allowing bars in the province to open early Sunday morning to allow fans to show their patriotism while rooting on Team Canada.
The Old Triangle and Factory Cookhouse and Dancehall are just two of the bars in Charlottetown that will be opening and serving alcohol earlier than usual for the game. Both will open at 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
Other jurisdictions across the country have also allowed bars to open up early for the big game. Manitoba bars will be opening as early as 5 a.m.
Team Canada will face off against Sweden at 8 a.m.
