Amazon Now: Delivering Booze to Columbus

Is there even a point to leave the house anymore? Amazon Now — the home delivery system that makes sure you aren’t without important products like milk, toilet paper or a Nintendo Switch, is now delivering booze. Sweet, sweet booze.

Starting today, the delivery service will add thousands of beers into their inventory like Chateau Ste. Michelle, Bud Light and Veuve Clicquot as well as local favorites like Great Lakes Brewing Company, Rhinegeist and MadTree Brewing.

Yes, through Prime Now you can have beer on your doorstep in one to two hours depending on how much you’re willing to pay. Two-hour delivery is free, while expediting that service will cost you 7.99 (which is the price of a cheap six-pack).

Huzzah for convenience! What do you think? Will this service be wildly abused and will local markets lose business because Amazon? Sound off in the comments.


Follow us. Seriously.

You might even win stuff like free meals and concert tickets.
