SkipTheDishes launches beer and wine delivery pilot in Winnipeg

Press release

SkipTheDishes is excited to announce that GPS-tracked liquor delivery is now available in Winnipeg, alongside 400+ restaurant delivery choices. Headquartered in the Exchange, SkipTheDishes is leveraging its delivery technology and app to deliver beer, fine wines, and spirits to Winnipeggers. De Luca Fine Wines, Fort Garry Brewing Company, Ellement Fine Wines and Spirits, among others, are all participating in the pilot program.

“With over a million meals delivered in Winnipeg, it made perfect sense to add liquor stores to our network,” says Andrew Chau, SkipTheDishes Co-Founder. “Winnipeggers have been asking to get a bottle of wine or beer with their takeout, and now you can get both delivered within the SkipTheDishes app. Whether you’re having a get-together with friends or a couple’s night in, SkipTheDishes liquor delivery has you covered.”

To order, customers must download the app for iOS or Android or go to the website and input their address to get a list of liquor stores that deliver to them.  Once the order is placed, customers are able to track their courier on a map while the delivery is in progress.  There are no minimum order requirements, and payment is made directly on the app or website. Customers must be of age to order and provide ID at the time of delivery.

“We’re super excited to finally offer our wide variety of beer for delivery,” says Orest Horechko, General Manager of Fort Garry Brewing Company. “With ales, lagers, and cider on the delivery menu, there’s something for everyone – especially when it comes to pairing it with the great restaurant meals on SkipTheDishes.”

With multiple liquor store partners on the app’s network, Winnipeg liquor delivery is currently available from 11AM to 9PM every day, and the delivery fee starts at $3.49.  Pilot beer and wine stores include Kenaston Wine Market, La Boutique Del Vino, Calabria Market & Wine Store, Shrugging Doctor Brewing Company, Half Pints Brewing Company, Torque Brewing, Pembina Hotel, and more.  A nationwide roll-out of liquor delivery to other Canadian and US markets is planned for the coming months.
