“Dry towns” of the North

Email question: “Is Inuvik a dry town?”

Answer: While some communities such as Paulatuk, Tuktoyaktuk, Ulukhaktok and others have restrictions on alcohol (meaning you can’t fly in with more than a case of beer and a 40-oz bottle) Inuvik has no restrictions on alcohol purchases. 

To use a pun, here’s “proof”: 75 percent alcohol for sale!

 

It should be noted, Tsiigehtchic is a dry town.

  1. LOL Tsiigehtchic is a “dry” community. I’m not sure it makes any difference except for the fact that a 26 costs $60. (Or did four years ago.) That 151 stuff is so deadly, it has a flame-resistant cap and a placard on it. Seriously, it has an actual little placard on it to show it’s flammable. I know a guy (in Tsiigehtchic) who actually drinks it. Straight, no less. That’s scary stuff.

  2. Okay, that’s a fair point.

    Technically I guess we’re all “dry” when it comes to marijuana too, because it’s illegal.

    It doesn’t mean much!

  5. they let you take photos in the liquor store? wait, you want to take photos in the liquor store??

  6. It’s all part of documentation of the town.

    Also, nobody cares if you take photos in stores. Just don’t use a flash and be discreet about it…

    After all, I did buy something while I was there. Not that bottle, but something else.
