)-- A new service is set out to become your online destination for craft beer purchases directly from the producer. Bevv.com, an online marketplace and e-commerce solution works directly with breweries and cideries and could soon become many consumers first choice when looking to locate beers from both inside and outside their geographical region.
“Our biggest goal here is to provide the consumer with direct access to beer that has been otherwise unobtainable without going to the physical location,” said company co-founder Travis Benoit. In addition to having a direct-to-consumer beer sales platform, Bevv.com has partnered with UPS and two UPS portfolio companies to afford on-demand delivery and carrier service of craft beer at the click of a button.
Bevv describes themselves as "an online marketplace and e-commerce solution for breweries to sell their craft beer directly to the consumer." And while a few other websites have attempted similar business models, none have been poised for the success due to legal hurdles, logistics, compliance, and partnerships that the Bevv team has been able to form.
“The nice part is that by working with us, the brewery is provided sales options direct-to-consumer well beyond what it would otherwise be provided through brick-and-mortar stores. After All, there is limited shelf space for an ever growing field of products, and breweries need an alternative outlet to meet demand,” said co-founder David O’Hara. Bevv is designed to suit the needs of tiny breweries to large.
O'Hara spent months researching each state's complex laws to ensure that Bevv operates within the confines of each state's legal framework. “Not many people have done this in the past because of the heavy burdens imposed by big dollar beer distributors and lobbyists,” he said.
“As the number of breweries increase in the U.S., shelf space is diminished and distributors’ portfolios are spread thin. Competition within the industry is at its highest point in history. Every SMB and brewery deserves the right to capitalize on their products and it’s time for change. Technology affords this opportunity,” explained Travis Benoit.
