Craft Beer Growler Deliveries On Tap for Astoria Gastropub
ASTORIA — A pub in Queens is bringing its craft beers straight to your door.
"I don't know why more people don't do it," said Matthew Callahan, the bar's marketing director. Like many busy New Yorkers, he says he often relies on delivery takeout for dinner. He started wondering if there was a way to get beer delivered, too.
"If we can get the rest of our life delivered to us, why can't we get our draft beer delivered to us?" he said.
It turns out, you can: while online services like Grubhub and Seamless don't offer booze delivery, the website Delivery.com does, Callahan said. Snowdonia launched its service on the site last week, offering its extensive menu of canned craft beers as well as its 10 draft brews for delivery.
The draft beers come in 64 oz. growlers that cost $24 or $29, which includes a $5 growler deposit fee that customers can get get refunded by either dropping it off at the bar in person or returning it to the delivery person during their next order.
Customers can also order from the pub's food menu on Delivery.com, as well as on Seamless and Grubhub. Delivery is currently available for addresses between Crescent Street and Steinway Street from 30th Avenue to 36th Avenue, though Callahan said they're looking to expand soon.
In addition to their beer delivery, the eatery recently launched a "Flights and Bites," beer dinner series featuring brews from a different craft brewery each month paired with three food courses from the Snowdonia kitchen.
