We partnered with UPS and 2 local on-demand delivery companies (think pizza delivery for beer and cider) that handle the carrier service. There are a couple of ways that we/you (us) can handle the shipping side of UPS. Please have the products ready upon the driver's arrival as the driver is only able to wait a maximum of 10 minutes.
- UPS comes to your location and picks up your product(s) for delivery
- Local on-demand pickup drivers come and pick up your product(s) for hyperlocal delivery
- You will receive a notification when an order is placed via SMS and email. Both links contain the order details and the label. You simply package the product(s) and print up the label and get it ready either for pickup or delivery by UPS. UPS will walk into your facility and exit with the packaged products.
With regard to on-demand orders, the driver will come into the taproom (like any other client of yours), show a receipt, and you simply hand them the order: growlers, cans, bottles, 5-gallons, etc. The driver takes the product(s) and drops the product(s) off at the consumer’s location and do all the security/compliance checks.
UPS does not operate on weekends. If an order is placed after the last pick up on Friday the earliest it can go out is Monday. The same goes for 1-day overnight and 2-day. This is not Bevv's decision and falls on UPS.
On-demand delivery is offered on weekends for local, on-demand beer and cider delivery.
Lastly, we offer in-store pickup for consumer pre-order. In this scenario, the customer has paid for the product already and please have it bagged or boxed up for the consumer's quick turnaround.
