Melbourne, if you long for the hermit life but have thus far been thwarted by your need for coffee and the occasional frosty ale, rejoice, for you may never have to leave the couch again.
Last week we told you about Bear Café and their lifesaving latte delivery service (OK, it’s Fitzroy only, but still), and now Liquorun has arrived to make late night trips to the bottle shop a thing of the past.
Operating from 2pm-2am daily, Liquorun lets you order your booze online and get it delivered for a fee of $7.50 or $12.50 before or after 11pm respectively.
It’s pretty much like Menulog for alcohol, and while that may seem like it’s encouraging reckless drinking, the three guys behind the business were aiming to cut out the hazards caused by party-goers hitting the streets late at night or worse, getting in their car.
The range isn’t bad either. They’re stocking mostly the big domestic brands and imports like Carlton, Asahi and Budweiser beer wise, but there’s the odd craft number like Brooklyn Lager, and there’s a decent grab bag of local wines.
They have a minimum order of $30, a maximum van capacity of ten cases, and, of course, you’ll need to show some valid ID.
