The Best Places to Order Beer, Wine, and Alcohol Online Right Now
Wine, beer, and booze may not be essential groceries, but we’re not here to judge: If a glass of pinot, or an IPA, or a cocktail helps you relax these days, we get it. (We’re currently self-soothing with a bloody Mary.) Need to restock? We’ve got you covered. Here are twelve places that are shipping beer, wine, and/or booze — even now, during all of this.
Note: You clearly must be 21 or older to order and receive alcohol. And be sure to check the details on these sites before you shop, as there may be laws or regulations that prohibit the delivery to where you live.
Winc is a subscription service that sends four bottles to your door every month, and picks them for you based on your tastes (you answer a short survey when you sign up). The bottles start at $13 each, shipping is included on orders with more than 4 bottles (otherwise it’s a flat $9), and you can cancel at any time. If you like a little more control in your life, you can build your own box — and you can always get more than four bottles in a shipment. They’re currently running an introductory offer: Buy four bottles, get $20 off.

Drizly works with local stores in your area (enter your address here to see if they deliver to you) to bring you beer, wine, and liquor in less than 60 minutes. In response to the coronavirus, Drizly is encouraging shoppers and drivers to designate a spot outside to complete the delivery, asking people to hold up their IDs for “contactless ID scanning,” and eliminating the customer signature step.

4. Wine Access
The folks at Wine Access believe the barrier to the world’s finest wine isn’t price — it’s access (hence the name!).

To become a member, you must sign up to receive their e-mail offers. If a bottle looks enticing to you, act fast to purchase!

CraftShack is an online marketplace that connects shoppers with smaller, family-owned, brick-and-mortar bottle shops so customers can try small-batch products without having to travel very far (er, at all). They sell far more than craft beer too: Choose from beer, liquor, cider, wine, and seltzer galore. You can add as much or as little as you want to your cart, and CraftShack will take care of the rest.

Reserve Bar’s mission is to deliver premium spirits across the country, and by the looks of it, they’re selling the best of the best. The platform was originally conceived for gifting, intended to help people send fancy booze to family and friends near and far — but who’s to say you can’t gift booze to yourself? You can even get a bottle custom- engraved to commemorate, well, anything you want.

Minibar is an on-demand delivery service that promises to deliver wine, liquor, beer, and even mixers to your door in under an hour in participating areas. (Find out if you’re on the list here.) They’ll also ship orders to eligible states within three to five days. Our favorite part? They show you the top-selling products in your area. In one neighborhood we checked, people are drinking Stella Artois, Veuve Cliquot, Bulleit Bourbon, and … ice. (Did we mention they also deliver ice?!)

Saucey is a booze delivery service that can get alcohol (including beer, wine, spirits, and mixers) to your door in 30 minutes between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 a.m with no delivery fee.
