Keeping Your Cellar and Fridge Stocked During the Crisis
In anticipation of a much longer quarantine than expected, you may find yourself running out of your favorite wine, beer, cider or spirit. Depending on your location (and liquor laws in your state) you may be able to get your order delivered directly to your door. In some cases, when you order groceries, you may be able to have a six-pack or two delivered as well. We have compiled a list of possible apps and services that deliver this essential ingredient for any quarantine. Local laws apply, so some of these will be limited to major metropolitan areas. Check with your local breweries, distillers and cider shops to see if they offer bottles of their products for pick up. Another way to get your hands on the gold is to sign up for a cellar club from your favorite winery or one of the brewery clubs available. Here are our favorites:
Drizly works with local stores and promises to deliver your selections within 60 minutes, which is awesome if you drink more than expected. (Please keep in mind that with the current COVID-19 situation, wait times may vary.)
