Feast your eyes on the Big Bar delivery car. It delivers food, sure, but also BEER!
Without further ado, your Idiotville feel-good story of the week:
What a time to be alive. If you live anywhere in the City of Erie, you can now sit in your favorite chair in the living room and have someone bring beer right to your face.
That’s right: Big Bar just became Erie’s first licensed beer delivery service, and my only question is what took so long. It’s such a good idea, I’m retroactively pissed that I’ve had to live this long without it.
Sure, our city has a bar within 200 feet of anywhere you can think of, but what about where I am now? It’s cold and slippery out there, and I don’t want to start up the car when I can dial up 1-800-BEER (note: the actual phone number is 814-888-9464) and keep my slippers on.
It’s so on-brand for Erie. Think of all those times you invited a couple friends over for the game, but didn’t know they’d also invite a couple of their friends and now it’s the third quarter and – gasp – you’re out of beer. Never again!
The only problem I see with this service is that deliveries are limited to 12 packs, and the range is limited to within five miles of Big Bar. This is likely to be a temporary problem because while the Big Bar beer car is Erie’s first to market this gold mine, you can bet they won’t be the last.
That’s why this is something good to happen in Erie. We’ve come to expect beer to flow like water out of every faucet in every building open to the public. We’ve come to expect beer in every shape, size, color, color, price, and alcohol content. Now you can expect beer to ring your doorbell.
