Beer delivery

This should help them gain and edge on the competition, but their pizza still sucks.

A wide variety of beers, including Blue Moon, Bud Light and Corona Extra, are available for order.
BFD... pale yellow stuff... boring. Of course that is consistent with their pizzas...

Maybe there's a "secret" beer menu for folks who'd like actual beer.

Actual beer with fake pizza? I doubt it.

Rather surprised they would take on the liability and headache that must be for the stores and delivery personnel. All delivering drivers would have to be 19 with a permit to "serve" the alcohol and then you have to card the person at the door, hoping it isn't fake ID, and then make a call back to the store to change the order if they couldn't present....in the meantime carrying shaken and skunking beer back to the cooler. I wouldn't want to deal with it.

Maybe in Chicago, But..

OLCC Laws wont allow* that in this state.

*or make it difficult , in all the company licencing, liability insurance, and server's licence tests you would have to pass to be permitted..



but a local bar will let you order pizzas to be delivered to you, there..

Patrons work in the industry, restaurants, pizza parlors and other brew-cafes..

I hadn't thought about it until now, that alcohol is one of the few things you still can't get delivered. I didn't notice because I don't buy it that much and because the places for buying beer and wine are a short walk from my home.

Hmmm...

A quick search online seems to indicate at least one company that sells alcohol by mail or courier, presumably including hard spirits and delivering to over 100 cities across the USA including Portland.

They seem to be partnering with local bars and pubs.

But, yes, it does seem odd, especially since Oregon apparently still requires state liquor stores for hard alcohol.

In my home town in California one of the things I did as a Taxi Driver was pick up bottles of liquor from the store,
and deliver them to houses , getting a delivery fee and the cost of the bottle reimbursed..

SLow times in Suburbia, I & re dispatcher sat in the office playing music together..


Washington privatized it and profit seeking raised prices, rather than lowering them as the promise was made, on the Ballot..

My time spent in Nelson, BC I noted they bought beet from provincial stores..
long case boxes if stubbies . stacked up like cords of wood until hauled back, to be shipped back to be washed and refilled..

Illinois does have some strict requirements to sell beer, as I'm sure most states do. I helped out with the beer tent at a city festival for a few years and they had to go through some expensive steps to get the proper permits etc... But the big problem was with getting helpers that weren't going to give their friends free drinks for the evening.

We have these in downtown Detroit now.. warm months of course. Pretty popular. I believe they tried here in Ann Arbor but the downtown streets are are old and to narrow as I recall. I stand corrected, found one here, Pedal Saloon.

Five states—Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Nebraska and New Hampshire—and the District of Columbia authorize the direct shipment of all spirits as specified.
Eight states allow the direct shipment of beer and wine as specified: Delaware, Massachusetts, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont and Virginia. The remaining states only allow direct wine shipments.

New York State has some fairly lax laws. Beer licenses are easy and cheap. Every corner deli sells beer. The drug stores sell beer. Most restaurants sell at least wine and beer. Wine seems to be in the middle. There are some wine-but-no-spirits stores.

This should help them gain and edge on the competition, but their pizza still sucks.
Our main PH closed about 2 yrs ago but they just opened a really tiny one in a strip mall that has some of the same people working there. My Wife loves their deep dish pizza and I like the cheesie bread, I am not a pizza guy so it doesn't matter much to me. Some Pizza Huts don't use the same sauce as others which I found out can really mess me up. Sauce is the main turn off for me when it comes to pizza and a lot of places that we get pizza from must get what ever the cheapest sauce they can get cause one week you can get a great pie then the next the sauce is so bad I won't eat it. As far as beer delivery goes it won't happen here as our PH doesn't have a Liquor License and can't get one in our county as there are none to be had, there all in use and are hard to get. Growing up beer delivery was the best, moms in the shower worked more times then not when we wanted to party lol. I was getting delivery at 14 and served at the store since I was 16, when the owner asked me one time for ID and I gave it to him ( just turned 21 ) he just looked at me and started shaking his head lol, I knew him and two employs outside of work because I worked on there power equipment where I worked so they thought I was over 21 the whole time.

Different countries, different laws. Other countries have been delivering beer to homes for decades.

I could do without the pizza. Frank Zappa had the idea.
