Bud Light delivery app keeps beer flowing in Washington, DC

It’s always a bummer when you run out of beer during the big game. Thanks to Anheuser-Busch InBev, Bud Light drinkers in Washington, DC won’t have to trek to the nearest store to replenish their supply. The company announced an app today that allows you to order up to 100 cases (!) of the brew, and promises that it’ll arrive at your door in under an hour. AB InBev certainly isn’t the first to offer suds delivery, as MillerCoors has already teamed up with Drizly for Miller Lite deliveries in Boston, New York, Seattle and DC. There are also services, like Minibar, that work with local alcohol shops to bring beer, wine and spirits to the front doors of thirsty customers. If you’re worried about age verification, the app examines the buyer’s credit card info and there’s a manual check upon delivery. The app is only available on Android, but an iOS version is on the way. Now that you can get pizza and beer delivered to your house, is there really any reason to leave?
