The Corporation contributes in excess of $122 million directly to the general fund of the Provincial Government. This comprises $122 million in profits, $1.25 million in collections for the Environmental Trust fund, and over $374,000 in real property taxes.
The central office and warehouse complex is located in Fredericton. The Corporation was founded in 1976, when it replaced the Liquor Control Board, which had been created in 1927.
In 2009 the corporation announced it would begin stocking its own brand of locally brewed beer, NB Select, in an effort to dissuade New Brunswickers from travelling to Quebec where beer is considerably cheaper. A decision was announced in 2011 that NB Select was to be discontinued due to low sales.
