Tax charges are based on applicable federal, state, provincial and harmonized sales tax rates based on the delivery address associated with your order.

The Beer Guy is unable to stock and store alcohol in the Ontario region.

To help with our businesses expenses, we add a 15% service fee on-top of retail prices. This allows us to continue to develop our technology, and employ exemplary service representatives able to help you at a moments notice.
