Nearly one out of every four alcoholic drinks consumed in the US is purchased at a restaurant or bar. Clearly people like drinks with their food. In fact, alcohol delivery has been one of our most requested features from DoorDash users. And today we’re excited to bring our customers just what they’ve asked for.
From now on, you can get alcohol delivered through DoorDash. We’re starting in Southern California first, with plans to expand quickly to other cities. While other alcohol delivery services bring warm beer from warehouses or require a separate delivery for alcoholic beverages, we’re building on our existing DoorDash partnerships and working with popular restaurants and breweries in town to let you order beer, wine and other spirits right along with your meals. We’re also working with a number of liquor stores to ensure you can choose from a wider selection of drinks with or without food.
Some of the great restaurants offering alcohol delivery through DoorDash include Golden Road Brewing, Ekkamai, Jinya Ramen Bar, Wurstkuche and High Park Tap House in the OC and LA areas, as well as Del Mar Rendezvous, Mike Hess Brewing, and PrepKitchen in the San Diego area.
To celebrate the launch of alcohol delivery on DoorDash, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Anheuser-Busch to deliver your favorite beers to your doorstep, just in time for the 4th of July. For a limited time, if you include a Budweiser, Bud Light or Stella Artois beer in your order and enter promo code CHEERSBEERS, the cost of delivery will be included.
Alcohol delivery is an exciting and important extension of the DoorDash product. For the past three years we’ve been perfecting the science of food delivery, but we’ve always said we want to offer an even wider selection of items. Today we’re taking another step in that direction by expanding beyond the food menu and tapping into the drinks list as well.
From our initial trials we know that customers will love the ease, simplicity, and flexibility of ordering alcohol through DoorDash. Thanks to our wide selection of restaurants, our to-the-minute ETAs, and our innovative features like the Delight Score, customers love ordering food through DoorDash. Now, people can get the same DoorDash experience while adding beer, wine, liquor or more to their cart, for an experience that’s more delightful than ever. With new features like alcohol built right into the DoorDash experience, DoorDash is truly the only delivery app you need.
The 4th of July is right around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to give DoorDash’s alcohol delivery a try. Visit doordash.com to get started today and keep an eye out for additional alcohol delivery promotions coming your way soon to spruce up your backyard BBQ, summer beach party, or romantic dinner for two with the perfect pairing.
