    Some Canadians Are Losing Their Damn Minds About Beer Being Sold In Supermarkets


    Today may just be Tuesday for some of you, but for folks in Ontario, today is the day that beer will officially be allowed to be sold in grocery stores. Huzzah!

    O, no big deal? O, it's a pretty big deal. The first shelved beer at Loblaws made "Loblaws" a trending topic. #Beer soon followed.

    Now, bear in mind that sales have only rolled out in select stores, but even a taste of impending reality was enough of a buzz for all of the following to ensue:

    These are the Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstores selling beer as of today in Toronto

    A PRESS CONFERENCE — and the resulting media frenzy — held in one of the stores. the Premier of the province.

    Premier Wynne has arrived to purchase her six-pack of beer inside a Loblaws on Leslie Street.

    Americans saw marriage equality this year, and for Canadians, this is a day they did not think would come, either.

    I have never, ever, ever been so happy to shop at Loblaws. #FreeTheBeer
