Steam Whistle beer delivery

Steam Whistle introduces free beer delivery

The only problem with loving brewery-fresh local beer is that, up until now, you've had to actually leave your home in order to get it. Well, fellow lovers of pantless-beer-enjoyment, you're in luck: as of Thursday, Steam Whistle will be introducing free delivery to select areas in the city.

Harkening back to the golden age of milkmen (if milkmen were way cooler and brought you beer instead of stupid milk), Steam Whistle's new "door to door" delivery service will launch downtown and cover the area from Bathurst to Yonge between and Dupont Street & Queens Quay West. To start, the service will only be available Thursdays and Fridays between 5pm and 9pm, but presumably if the idea takes off we might see their delivery service grow in terms of its geography and hours.

Would-be pilsner drinkers can order 12 bottles for $24.95, 24 351ml cans for $49.95, or Steam Whistle's bitchin' new "Can Van" (10 cans in a box that looks like a retro van) for $22.95. During delivery hours, you can place an order by calling or texting 647-992-BEER and outside of delivery hours you can place an order in advance by emailing doortodoor@steamwhistle.

Fresh beer from the brewery to your house! Whether or not you put pants on to answer the door is up to you.
