We’ve all been there, the BBQ or party gets going and the beer runs out. In days of yore, one had to get quite creative in order to wrangle up some suds. Today, however, is a new day with a new story and The Beer Store has just announced that it will begin to start delivery beer to your house. The Toronto Sun is reporting that The Beer Store has launched a trial project where drinkers can go to beerxpress.ca or use The Beer Store app to order some brew from outlets in Scarborough and 11 locations in Ottawa.
While Ottawa is getting the full availability of The Beer Store, Toronto delivery will be restricted. The Sun reports that delivery in Toronto will is bounded by Hwy. 401, Lake Ontario, Victoria Park and the Danforth.
When the delivery service launches there will be a charge of $9.75 in Scarborough and $8.00 in Ottawa and orders have to exceed $20 and may not exceed $500.
The Sun further reports that The Beer Store will rely on Independent drivers to make deliveries and customers will have to prove they are of age before the beer is handed off. The whole delivery process will take about 2 hours, and has no immediate plan to expand across the province. Industry insiders state that it could be several months before the service is fully up and running.
