We've all been there: you're hours deep in a friendly get together, poker game, or Android Police podcast. Suddenly disaster strikes - your spirits run out, both literally and figuratively. If you've got the brand new Drizly app for Android, you can resupply your booze in under an hour without ever having to leave the house. Unfortunately, this incredible service is only available in very specific parts of Boston, Manhattan, and Brooklyn for the time being.
The app is pretty simple, just input your location and payment information (they'll check to make sure you're 21) and pick out the beer, wine, or hard liquor you want. Pay the tab and tip the driver, and it will be at your house in "20 to 40 minutes." The prices are the same as at your local liquor store, because that's where the supply is coming from: Drizly doesn't actually deliver booze itself, it simply sends orders to local stores that already have a delivery service. The store even processes the credit card order. Stores pay Drizly a monthly fee in the hopes of attracting sales and customers, so the cost to end users is nothing more than the sale price of the alcohol and a tip.
Drinkers in Boston and New York, raise a glass to Drizly... everyone else, start begging them to come to your neighborhood.
BOSTON, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drizly, Inc., the smartphone app for fast alcohol delivery, today continued its American expansion with announcements that it is the first service of its kind to deliver in Brooklyn; and that the Drizly app is now available for Android phones via Google Play.
As a special welcome to Brooklyn, new Drizly users can enter WELCOMENY for $10 off any order.
For consumers of legal age, Drizly is like having a liquor store on their smartphone; with the largest retail delivery network inNew York, Drizly is the fastest, most convenient way for consumers in Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Park Slope and Boerum Hill to get alcohol delivered in just 20-40 minutes. Products on Drizly even cost the same as they do in the liquor store.
"Why go to the liquor store when the liquor store will come to you for the same price?" asked Nick Rellas, founder and CEO of Drizly. "After having such success with Drizly's Manhattan launch, rapidly expanding into Brooklyn was a natural. We are so excited to deliver speed, convenience and selection to the legal drinkers of Brooklyn."
