Does NB have as nazi of a testing process as the LCBO? My main worry with the growler situation is that the beer gets held up before it hits the growler station.
They don't - NB Liquor's main concern is (or at least was) people bringing beer back from Quebec for resale. When I lived there there were a lot of guys in northern NB who would sell out of their garage. A lot of stores and bars that would sell things not in NB stores (again, usually Quebec or US beers) if you knew *how* to ask.
