Drizly brings to the liquor store to D.C.'s fingertips, With the same prices as in-store and deliveries in just 20-40 minutes

WASHINGTON, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drizly, a technology company powering fast, convenient beer, wine and liquor delivery for consumers across the U.S., continues its rapid expansion into new markets with the announcement of availability throughout Washington D.C. The nation's capital is the 6th major metropolitan market serviced by Drizly, joining Boston, Chicago, Denver, New York, and Los Angeles.

Drizly is the smartphone app for fast, convenient alcohol delivery.

Areas in Washington D.C. where Drizly is now available to consumers include Adams Morgan, Atlas District, Capitol Hill, Cathedral Heights, Chinatown, Cleveland Park, Columbia Heights, Downtown, Dupont Circle, Foggy Bottom, Georgetown, Glover Park, Kalorama, Logan Circle, McLean Gardens, Mt.Vernon Square, Navy Yard, NoMa, Shaw, Southwest, and Woodley Park. Additional areas will be added and announced as they become available.

Drizly is the fastest, most convenient way for consumers of legal drinking age to get beer, wine and liquor delivered. Users simply download the free app to their smartphone (iPhone and Android) and are instantly given access to thousands of products through Drizly's retail partner network, all at the same price as in the store. With a few taps of the finger, the consumer's beverages of choice are delivered in 20-40 minutes.

"Our rapid American expansion brings us to the nation's capital, where consumers who order through Drizly will appreciate the speed and convenience we've become known for across the United States," said Nick Rellas, co-founder and CEO of Drizly. "We are especially pleased to launch in D.C. with the explicit blessing of local regulators, and the best network of retail partners in that city."

"More than one customer has said, 'If Sherry's doesn't carry it, they don't make it!' And this why we chose Drizly," said Ryan Wegman, director of wine & outreach for Sherry's Wine & Spirits. "They have the stern-to-stem infrastructure necessary to carry our hefty inventory to customers in under 40 min. When you have 900+ craft beers & growlers, 1k+ whiskies & spirits, 2k wines, and the list goes on, you can't cut corners on technology or support. We were approached by many of their competitors but Drizly was clearly up to the task from the starting gate thanks to their current investments and foresight."  

Drizly is available for download on iPhone and Android. As a special welcome to D.C. drinkers, new Drizly members can enter WELCOMEDC at checkout for free delivery (normally $5) on their first order made through September 31. They can also follow @DrizlyDC on Twitter for the latest local updates, events and promotions.
