在選舉承諾為安省帶來$1啤酒，雄心壯志的安省省長福特 (Doug Ford) 宣佈了”Buck-A-Beer Challenge”，鼓勵安省的啤酒商和生產商在8月27日起將低於5.6%酒精含量的啤酒，在長週末假期下調至$1。
Today we announced the return of Buck-a-Beer to Ontario, effective August 27. We're going to put consumers first, and give breweries the opportunity to compete on price. We trust Ontarians to make their own smart, mature and responsible choices. Promise made, promise kept! pic.twitter.com/IWNBmiHtns

You definitely won’t see #FreshGLB take part in this. We believe in our brands, take pride in our quality and firmly feel that are current prices are very fair.

Nickel Brook will not take part in the proposed "buck a beer" plan. We've always been about quality & don't aim to change that now, or ever. We have no intention in joining a race to the bottom. We stand with our fellow craft brewers in opposing this gimmick by Ford.

We place a high precedent on quality and freshness in our beer, and we choose to support the team of 130 that makes it all happen with @OnLivingwage. This and more mean we will not be pursuing the #BuckABeer program. https://t.co/9B3TfONfnL pic.twitter.com/JhevA6Md4H

BUCK-A-BEER: As an independently-owned brewery, we can tell you unequivocally that it is impossible to sell a beer for a dollar without compromising quality.
So, we’ve decided to respond… https://t.co/tElHdOTAJJ

We won’t be participating in #buckabeer. Our province has much bigger issues to tackle. The cancellation of the guaranteed income pilot in Lindsay will have a much greater impact on our local community.
