He said by August 27, brewers will be able to drop the minimum beer price from $1.25 back to $1. In a statement, Mothers Against Drunk Driving said lowering the price of beer carries a risk to public safety, and can lead to an increase in alcohol-related problems including impaired driving.

Premier Doug Ford said participating businesses will be offered prime spots in Liquor Control Board of Ontario stores or advertising in the store magazine's inserts, among other possible rewards.

As well, he added, "the respect and appreciation they will get from consumers will be priceless".

"Buck-a-Beer" will not apply to draft beer sold in restaurants and bars or ciders, spirits and wine.

To provide incentives for brewers to lower their prices, the government is creating what it calls the buck-a-beer challenge, which will provide participating breweries with incentives at the provincially-owned LCBO stores. "The Premier is asking the beer producers to lower their price".
