Have you ever wished you could get a fresh six-pack or another bottle of bourbon without leaving your couch? Liquor and beer delivery has been available in Chicago for a while now, but most of the existing services focus on popular brands, eschewing obscure spirits and craft beers. Now local liquor store chain Binny's Beverage Depot is joining the on-demand delivery fray, offering up 12,000 items that can show up on your door step in less than an hour, according to a report from Crain's.
In order to shuttle all of that booze to your house, Binny's has partnered with Instacart, a service that delivers groceries from Costco, Jewel-Osco, Whole Foods and local stores. While the price of products from Binny's delivered by Instacart will be identical to those offered in-store, customers will incur a delivery fee, ranging from $5.99 to $9.99, based on the size of the order and the speed of the delivery. If you're a new Instacart customer, your first order of $10 or more will be delivered for free.
So, the next time you're missing some Campari for your negroni or need to track down some Pipeworks Ninja vs. Unicorn before the big game, you might be able to skip a trip to the liquor store and pull up an app instead.
