Look out, Amazon. You have some new home delivery competition.
For more than 80 years, the Dangelo family has been in the business of libations. Their company, Brentwood Distributing in West Mifflin, does wholesale deliveries to bars, restaurants and events across Pensylvania.
Starting this month, the family-owned business is opening their catalog of more than 300 beverages to every brew-loving home in Pennsylvania.
In addition to offering sodas and scores of craft and specialty beers, their warehouse is also the exclusive state distributor for artisanal, non-alcoholic drinks such as Moody Culture Kombucha and Allegheny Coffee & Tea Exchange‘s cold brew kegs.
On June 4, the company launched Beverages2U.com, an online subscription service that allows customers to schedule regular deliveries to their homes on a monthly basis. (If you’re envisioning teenagers ordering up a few six-packs, don’t worry. Someone over the age of 21 must be present to sign for each delivery.)
While monthly delivery services for beer and other niche consumables have become common in the age of e-commerce, the Beverages2U announcement notes that they are the first (and currently, only) beer distributor in the state licensed to deliver their wares directly to consumers under Pennsylvania’s notoriously strict liquor laws.
“Beverages2U.com is unique, not only because we’re at the forefront of beer delivery in PA, but because of our subscription service. No one is doing anything quite like it,” said the service’s founder Michelle Dangelo Arnoni. “Who doesn’t want their beer fridge automatically replenished once a week? Without even having to think about it!”
If the state-wide rollout is a success, Beverages2U hopes to expand its services nationally.
The service, which comes just weeks after the announcement of Giant Eagle’s BeerVan, offers a wide range of prices — cases of Keystone Ice start at $8.25, while a case of the Belgian Stout Ale Delirium Tremens retails for $89.99. Delivery costs vary depending on your order and there’s no delivery charge for orders over $150. Check out the full selection here.
