Yes, you CAN buy booze on Good Friday. We tell you where.

It's a question that pops up at least once every time Easter comes around: "Can you buy alcohol on Good Friday." The simple answer is yes... but not from your booze shop.

NSW law states that no takeaway alcohol can be sold on Christmas Day and Good Friday. This means that you can bet your bottom dollar your local will be shut and your liquid gold denied to you.

If you, like many of us, have forgotten to stock up on the booze in the lead-up to the four-day long weekend, you do have a few options.


Types of establishments that sell alcohol on Good Friday

1. Restaurants, bars and other licensed venues

All licensed venues will be allowed to serve it to you on Good Friday between midday and 10pm, providing they're open. If you're thinking, "Great! I can head to my local pub and take home some bottles for my house party", think again. As per the law, you can't take-away on Good Friday so all booze bought must be drunk on the premises.

  • Dine in only
  • Takeaway

2. Microbreweries - buy from the producer / cellar door

To the Hunter Valley!

Failing that, with so many microbreweries in Sydney and other major cities, you won't have to travel too far to get a takeaway. While the law states that no takeaway alcohol may be sold on Good Friday, there's a loophole. Producers and cellar doors are exempt and will be able to sell you booze. For anyone in Sydney looking to buy a few beers who forgot to stock up in time, the answer is to head to your local brewery.

  • Dine in for select breweries
  • Takeaway
