There will be no Beer Stores or LCBOs open in Niagara Region on Labour Day, Sept. 4.

However, Niagara is home to over 60 wineries, the majority of which have indicated they will be open for business. Since there are far too many to list, call your favourite local to see if they have adjusted their hours on the mandatory holiday.

Niagara-on-the-Lake leads the pack with four open breweries, three of them just minutes apart on Niagara Stone Rd.
