IndyStar: To-your-door alcohol app expands

Alcohol delivery app Drizly is making its way into more Indianapolis-area communities.

Starting Wednesday, the website and mobile app that brings beer, wine and spirits from Big Red Liquor stores to users’ doorsteps, will be available in 15 new areas: Avon, Beech Grove, Bloomington, Clark Township, Franklin Township, Greenwood, Homecroft, Johnson County, Noblesville, Plainfield, Terre Haute, Speedway, Southport, Westfield and Zionsville.

But this time there’s a catch. Not all of the areas will be served by on-demand delivery, in which orders arrive within the hour.

Except for in Westfield, all deliveries in the newly added communities will have to be scheduled. Users can place orders for delivery on Thursday, Friday or Saturday.


On-demand and scheduled deliveries are still available in Broad Ripple, Brownsburg, Carmel, Downtown, Fishers, Fletcher Place, Fountain Square, Geist, Irvington, Meridian-Kessler and now Westfield.

“As we expand to more suburban areas, that means liquors stores must cover more ground, so launching with a scheduled delivery helps us gauge where we can expand further,” said Drizly’s senior manager of communications Kerin Horgan.

Drizly launched in the Indianapolis-area last October but delivering alcoholic products was nothing new.

Matt Bell, a spokesman for Big Red Liquors said Drizly allowed the company “to do what it has been doing, but more efficiently.”

Users can order any item available at their nearest Big Red Liquor store and have it delivered to their homes. A minimum $20 order is required plus a $5 delivery fee.


All current alcohol restrictions are enforced. You must be 21 and older and sales are not allowed on Sundays.

For residents in the new service areas, Drizly is offering free delivery for the first two weeks with the code “Indyexpansion.”
