Here’s a potential solution for people who don’t live in reasonable proximity to an LCBO or Beer Store, or for anyone who’s just incredibly lazy. Steam Whistle Brewery has introduced a new beer-delivery service, and it’s 100-per-cent free (the delivery part, at least—you have to pay for the beer). There are other alcohol-delivery outfits in Toronto, but they all change a premium for door-to-door booze. Steam Whistle’s service is somewhat limited for now: it operates on Thursday and Friday evenings from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and the delivery area is fairly circumscribed (it doesn’t extend east of Yonge or west of Bathurst). Also, unlike some of those shady booze delivery services from the late-90s, the Steam Whistle version is unlikely to be useful in the underage-drinking department (a rep for the brewery confirms that drivers will check the IDs of anyone who appears to be under 30). Still, the service could be helpful in unexpected beer emergencies. The options include a 12-pack of bottles for $25, a case of cans for $50, or, for $23, a ten-beer “Can Van” (bonus: it comes in a fun box that looks like a van). [Via BlogTO]
