Who Delivers Alcohol? The Top Sites To Use For Booze

Here's How To Get Everything You Need For Your Quarantini, Right From the comfort of Your Couch

Updated April 1, 2020

While the idea of a service that delivers your favorite booze straight to your door has always been appealing, in this time of social distancing and virtual happy hours it's coming close to a necessity. That's why we here at Groupon Coupons decided to take a look at the virtual marketplace of alcohol apps to break down what you need to know to get your buzz on.

What we discovered is that the service you should use depends heavily on three key questions:

1. Where Do You Live?

State and municipal laws regulating alcohol delivery combined with the way many delivery services start local and then expand in a scattershot manner means that not every option is available in all locales. That's why your first click should always be to the company's service area page, where you'll either find a list of states and cities or you can enter your zip code to determine eligibility.

And speaking of laws, right now the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is causing many states to temporarily rewrite theirs to accomodate businesses and consumers in a time of crisis. To see if your delivery options have changed or if you should expect serious disruption to service, be sure to read any COVID-19 updates a company releases.

2. What do you want?

The alcohol selection of each company means that who you use can depend on whether you're looking for beer, wine, spirits, or even a pre-mixed cocktail. Once you've determined what category of drink you're looking for, make sure you delve further into their selection to see if they carry your favorite brands and vintages before signing up.

3. When do you want it?

One of the biggest differences between all the alcohol delivery services is whether they offer same day delivery or not. Depending on what you want and where you live, you could get your delivery from a courier in an hour or even less. For businesses that rely on regular shipping services, expect a two-day minimum if you don't opt for steeply priced expedited shipping. And remember, no matter where you live or what service you use, alcohol delivery requires someone 21 or older with a valid ID to sign for the package, so keep your schedule in mind when ordering.
