Ever wanted a beer from a brewery that isn’t sold in the markets you have access to? Yeah, we thought so. Well Beerjobber.com is coming to your rescue. This new website (currently in beta), will allow you to have beer shipped directly from the brewery to your door. It will be the first online craft beer market of its kind. How you ask? Beerjobber takes care of all of the distribution obstacles and shipping issues. Brewery to your doorstep.
So what is a beer jobber? Back in the days before prohibition “beer jobbers” would pick up and deliver beer straight from the local breweries. Eventually the need for beer jobbers faded away, however today there is a need for a new kind of beer jobber – the online kind. Thus Beerjobber.com was born.
The premise is simple. Sign up, log on, and pick the beers you want. They ship directly from the brewery to your door. This is made possible by a special license that allows BeerJobber.com have breweries ship on their behalf. The site has been in beta for months, with 1,500 registered testers, shipping to over 20 states. On February 13th, BeerJobber opens it’s virtual doors to the public. There are almost 38 breweries to choose from.
“Beerjobber is a first, and we’re very excited about opening our doors to the public in time for Valentine’s Day in support of those who truly love and enjoy craft beer,” said Sean Nevins, President of Beerjobber. “As a new company, we’re committed to featuring smaller breweries seeking to reach an expanded audience, as well as exposing craft beer lovers to new tastes. We are continually seeking out new brewery partners and encourage consumers to reach out and let us know what breweries they’d like to see on our site.”
Today marks the site’s “Spread The Love” launch celebration, and is featuring a few Valentine’s Day brews like
- Voodoo Love Child, Vodooo Brewery (Meadville, PA)
- Rowhouse Red, Philadelphia Brewing Company (Philadelphia, PA)
- Organic Chocolate Stout, Bison Brewing (Berkeley, CA)
Members can buy this beer for themselves or ship to their Valentine as a gift.
In addition, members will be able to purchase a case of beer as a gift and can opt to have the recipient receive a Valentine-themed email letting them know that a case of brewery-fresh beer is on its way.
