Manufacturing Policy

A craft manufacturer is a craft brewery, craft distillery, craft winery, craft cidery or craft refreshment producer issued a permit by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) authorizing them to produce beverage alcohol within the Province of Saskatchewan.

A manufacturer may produce more than one type of alcohol (e.g. beer, wine, spirits, cider and refreshments) once it receives authorization from SLGA to produce each type of alcohol. A manufacturer must adhere to the specific production level requirements for each type in order to remain classified as a craft manufacturer. Where a manufacturer produces a type of alcohol that does not meet the requirements of a craft producer for that type of alcohol, it would be subject to the rules and requirements of a regional, national or bottling manufacturer.
