LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) You can have just about anything delivered to your front door and now, a Lexington business is adding alcohol to that list.
Anyone 21 and older in Fayette County can go to hops2go.com, pick out what they want and then call their order in at 888-BEER. When the order is placed, it is run through the Hops 2 Go system and then brought to you.
“We were sitting around drinking beer, eating pizza like, hey we got our pizza delivered, why can't we get our beer delivered,” said Hops 2 Go president Thomas Towles.
Hops 2 Go originally started just for beer delivery because that is all that was legally allowed, but recently Kentucky revised that, so they took advantage.
“We didn't even know the laws were going to change. So we do all that and the laws change to be liquor and wine and we're like awesome, let's get it going. So we've been open for about eight weeks now and it's picking up every day,” said Towles.
As the business grows, Hops 2 Go hopes this idea will also make the streets of Lexington a little safer. You do the drinking and leave the driving to them.
“Game night, Game of Thrones night, tailgating for the football games, weddings, barbecues, pretty much anything where you're consuming alcohol, we could be a need for you,” said Towles.
The company is working on creating a mobile app where customers can order Hops 2 Go. They hope to have it up and running in about a month.
