Drizly app – booze for bozos?

drizly appHave you seen this latest “app” called Drizly?

“Drizly is the technology company powering a superior shopping experience for beer, wine and liquor. Combining the best selection and price, content-rich and personalized shopping experiences, and the speed and convenience of on-demand delivery, Drizly delivers “The Joy of Drinking™” to legal-age drinkers across the United States. Backed by a world-class group of angel and institutional investors, the company has become a superior place to shop for beer, wine and liquor in Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Providence, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington D.C., and other cities across the United States.”

Beneath all that fluff and carefully worded hype, is the fact that Drizly is sort of like the third “app” of procuring commercially-produced alcohol.

  1. First there was the traditional way of getting your liquor: Physically going to the store and buying it. Added cost: a few calories burned and scare of human interaction.
  2. Then, we distanced ourselves a bit – and started calling our orders in for delivery. Cost: need for a phone, and still some human contact.
  3. Now – we’ve completely eliminated the human, and you can just issue orders via your handheld robot. Cost: a delivery fee for some tech-startup middle-man.

“Dehumanizing humanity one app at a time.”

Delivery area for NJ is Hoboken and the “safer” parts of Jersey City, and includes mega liquor stores like Super Buy Rite.

On the flip side, I can see why local beer and wine outlets would give this kind of avenue a shot, because it would make sense to expand your sources of revenue. And if the millenial generation no longer knows how to purchase ordinary products without the use of the app – so be it. A few more years of this – and we’ll have an entire nation of completely app-dependent drones who will essentially drop dead if the internet and power grid went down for more than 24 hours.
