You know the feeling. You’d like to relax with a beverage in hand, but the fridge is bare – and so is the liquor cabinet. Or maybe you've been mid-party when the unthinkable has happened, with every esky coming up empty, and all the nearby bottle shops closed.
The folks behind Liquorun — former AFL teammates Joel MacDonald, James Strauss, and Rohan Bail — can certainly relate, and have come up with a solution. They'll bring alcohol to your door on demand within 60 minutes — a service already available in Melbourne and Sydney. Now Brisbane's joined the party.
For the first time, Brisbanites can replenish their booze supplies at the touch of a button, and quickly. Sure, other bottle-os offer delivery, but they also make you wait much longer than an hour. And who wants to do that?
The process is simple: head to the Liquorun website, select your preferred local liquor store and your tipple of choice, then expect a knock at the front door. It’s not just beer, wine and spirits on offer. You can even order food from local Brisbane eateries if you’re craving a delicious donut, hot pizza or juicy burger. They'll even solve the classic party facepalm — they'll bring that ice you forgot to buy.
For those partying well into the night, it is worth remembering that this isn't a 24-hour service. A certain amount of forethought is required, with the service cutting off at 11pm — 10pm in Brisbane — due to licensing laws.
