Ever wish you could stay on your couch and have cold beer delivered directly to your front door? Well this is now a reality for those of us in the Portland, Oregon area. As of yesterday Amazon began offering its Prime Now service with beer, cider and wine delivery for those of legal drinking age.
Ordering beer now is as easy as opening up the Amazon App on your smartphone or log on from your computer. Amazon Prime Now delivers between the hours of 8:00am-10:00pm. One-hour delivery is $7.99 and two-hour delivery is free with a $30.00 minimum Prime Now purchase.
