Deliveroo has been providing us homebodies with delicious cuisine off the back of a bike for around a few years now, so it’s only fitting that they take on the responsibility of delivering our alcohol too.
One of our favourites, Bottle & Barrels, has teamed up with Deliveroo to step up the game in alcoholic convenience. You can now officially order your beer, cider and wine from your phone and have it show up on your doorstep… welcome to the 21st century.
Choose from a Furphy six pack, a four pack of Rodenbach cans, Blackman’s lager, the delicious Pirate Life IPA or you can get your hand on the Colonial Bertie cider six pack. You can also indulge in their Craft Beer Mixed Six Packs – all you need to do is choose the type of beer (sours, sessions, pale, IPAs, darks) and the team will provide a mix of their best for you to try at home.
As for the wines, you can get some Oakdene NV Brut, Koonara Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc, Between Five Bells Pinot Noir or even some Cape Barren McLaren Vale Shiraz.
Best of all, once you’ve selected from the on-demand app your favourite beer or wine, they’ll show up at your door in the next 30 minutes (if specified as ASAP) – all for just a $5 delivery fee! The time has come where you can have your steak cooking with its matching bottle of red on the way, how good is that??
The days of food delivery are old news, but the days of alcohol-only home delivery are only just beginning here in Geelong. Treat up Forté readers; imagine a life where you actually never have to leave the house (unless attending local live music, of course).
Heads up though, they may ask for ID on delivery.
