Levante Brewing, one of the areas most highly regarded craft breweries, has announced the launch of an innovative direct can-to-consumer platform called “Mercury.” “The nature of craft beer and customer expectation has evolved,” says Levante partner Jim Adams. “We’re pleased to create another convenience for Levante lovers by providing statewide access to our beers.”
Founded in 2015 in West Chester, Levante says that test deliveries using the Mercury program were completed at the end of last year. “It is our hope that shipping fresh cans of our most sought after beers will delight our customers who can’t make it to our brewery for our can releases,” says Tim Floros, CEO and President of Levante. “Customers who are familiar with the quality of Levante beer can expect the same drinking experience, only now, ordering it from the comfort of their living rooms.”
According to Adams, Levante is the first Pennsylvania craft brewery to offer can delivery direct to customers. Online purchases can be placed on Levante’s website to those 21 and older. The direct-to-door beer is priced the same as pick-up at the brewery and range in price from $15 to $22 per four-pack. The service officially launched on Feb. 4.
Levante has also partnered with a Pittsburgh-based carrier to keep shipping costs reasonable as well as making sure the product arrives fresh (all cans are date stamped) and in good condition. Deliveries are available throughout the state, take approximately three to six days for delivery and must be signed for by an adult upon arrival.
Brew-to-you options at the start will include four-packs of 16-ounce cans like the citrusy pith flavors of Cloudy & Cumbersome, the dry-hopped New England IPA Tickle Parts and the imperial latte-inspired stout King of Birds.
