The Alliance of Beverage Licensees (ABLE BC) is the membership-based advocacy organization representing British Columbia’s private liquor industry. We are the largest and most effective liquor industry association in BC, with membership including private liquor retailers, pubs, bars, nightclubs, hotel liquor licensees, as well as various agents, suppliers, and benefit providers.
