Lovers of foamy summer libations might be happy to hear that The Beer Store–which launched its Beer Xpress pre-order and pickup service last year–has just kicked off a home delivery program in Ottawa and Scarborough.

While the service isn’t available in Oakville, Burlington, Milton or Halton Hills just yet, multiple media reports indicate a broader roll-out is possible.
- Canadians’ interactions with each other significantly reduced: cellphone data study
- Tim Hortons is giving you a chance to win a free coffee
- PICK A SIDE: Should trick-or-treating be cancelled this year?
The move, surprisingly, comes months after the LCBO (which is not going on strike, thankfully) announced an online ordering and pick-up/delivery program.
But since you can’t have your favourite brews delivered to your 905-area doorstep just yet, now might be a good time to remind you that you can pre-order products and pick them up in store.
As you may recall, The Beer Store launched the Beer Xpress service at 25 stores across the province–including one in Milton (1071 Maple Ave) and two in Oakville (104 Lakeshore Road West and 511 Maple Grove Drive)–in July 2016.
As for how it works, the program allows customers to pre-order beer online from their smartphones or computers and pick up their reserved beverages within 30 minutes.
According to the Beer Store, all purchases are subject to the Beer Store’s award-winning ID25 responsible sale program.
