I love the idea of getting beer delivered right to my door, but I don’t like the idea of paying crazy prices for it. If I pay $100 for beer delivery, I expect Burt Reynolds to show up in a black and gold 1977 Pontiac Trans Am. That’s what I like about the way Sumerian Brewing is handling their shipping option. No, The Bandit won’t deliver the beer, but still, I like their style.
It’s a flat rate. Buy a case, they deliver. What’s more, the price is pretty damned good too. They’ll ship the beer to any location in Washington state. You’ll get a $10 Coupon with your shipment as a Thank You for your support!
I think more breweries should follow Sumerian’s lead. Absorb the shipping cost into the price of the beer, or offer a reasonable shipping rate. Although it may not be the same as selling it over the counter at regular retail markup, it is still selling beer. These days, moving product has its own value, even you’re moving it at a lower margin.
