You dont actually do this. Since you have NEVER charged an establishment or Manufacturer with illegal inducements to sell beer - and virtually 99.999% of all breweries are providing kick-backs or free beer, money, merchandise etc - some are creative, some are blatant - all are illegal and Ontario has NEVER done anything. Joke.

‎With the proliferation of Ontario produced craft beer and cider together with the increased availability of similarly high quality beer and cider available through the LCBO; the existing bring-your-own wine endorsement appears unjustifiably limited and should be expanded to include a broader range of commercially-made beer and cider products.
