Redmond's LetsPour ships 200,000th bottle, announces new services for beer enthusiasts
LetsPour.com, an online craft beer store based in Redmond, announced the shipping of its 200,000th bottle and rolled out a new service to satisfy increasing customer demands by offering lower prices and next-day delivery on bottles and fresh growlers in Washington state.
"Unbelievable," said LetsPour CEO Raghav Kher about how many bottles they have shipped. "200,000 bottles in about half the time we expected. We want to thank Washington's beer lovers for making this exciting journey possible. This just proves what we've said all along: American craft brewing is the wave of the future."
Kher attributes LetsPour's success to the sophistication of craft beer drinkers and growing demand in Washington and across the country. Beer enthusiasts traditionally used message boards and forums to hunt down and trade beers they couldn't get locally. Now, they are increasingly venturing online to explore styles and brands not available in local shops. LetsPour's staff constantly searches to find and obtain the nation's best beer. The site has daily offerings of hard-to-find selections and seasonal beers that aren't widely available.
"Among craft beer geeks, shopping for beer online is all about getting your hands on extremely limited, highly sought after beers as soon as they're available," said Kher. "We've had customers confess that rather than working, they are monitoring LetsPour so they can pounce on a beer as soon as it launches."
LetsPour will also offer a limited selection of growlers of tap-only beers online for delivery the next day in Washington. These one-liter growlers are filled using a state-of-the-art tap module that first fills the containers with CO2, eliminates all oxygen contact and keep the beer fresh.
"The first time the beer in our growlers is exposed to air after leaving the keg...is when you unscrew the cap," Kher said. "Short of traveling to the brewery, this is the freshest beer you can drink. And you get to do it in the comfort of your own home."
Next-day delivery and local pricing is available for the entire selection of craft beers that ship from LetsPour's Washington distribution center. Orders must be placed by noon online in order to guarantee delivery the following day. Orders placed on Friday by 3 p.m. will be delivered on Monday. Orders placed on the weekend will be delivered on Tuesday. For a handful of remote locations, LetsPour may not be able to guarantee next-day delivery.
