You’ve probably already seen the news that the Western Australian government has just advised there are new liquor restrictions coming into effect today as part of the battle against COVID-19.

These measures will apply to all packaged liquor outlets through WA and in reality, they are not really that restricting:

From 10am March 25, all packaged liquor outlets will be subject to the following quantities for sale per customer per day:

  1. 11.25 litres (one carton) of beer, cider or pre-mixed spirits; or
  2. 2.25 litres (3 bottles) of wine; or
  3. 1 litre of spirits; or
  4. 1 litre of fortified wine; or
  5. a combination of any two of (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) above but not a combination of two of the same product.

Sounds very do-able to us (while we can still afford it), so let’s not have another toilet paper situation.

Outside of the larger franchise alcohol outlets, we’ve started a list of smaller local joints offering takeaway/pickup booze options, so you can even save yourself a trip to the bottle-o and keep up that social distancing/self-isolating!
