Innis & Gunn have launched a new service - a next day delivery of cold beer.

If you’re missing a cold pint in the pub then Scottish brewer Innis & Gunn have the next best thing with the launch of their cold beer next day delivery service.

The Innis & Gunn cold beer delivery service offers residents of Glasgow and Edinburgh a 24 hour turnaround on orders placed by 3pm.

To launch the service, the brand is running a lucky dip competition and will refund five orders placed between 10 am on Thursday 14 May and 3pm on Friday 15 May at random, with no limit on the amount of beer in the order.

The new service has been made possible through a collaboration with Thermo Logistics, a company Innis & Gunn use for keg deliveries to pubs.

With their refrigerated vans and drivers off the road due to the COVID-19 crisis, their fleet has been recruited by the brewer to make deliveries to households.

Additionally, customers will be emailed a 2-hour delivery window thanks to the involvement of Edinburgh based software company PODFather.

Neil Innis Sharp, head of brand experience at Innis & Gunn, said: “There is nothing like cracking open a cold and refreshing can of beer, and while we can’t go out to pubs for a pint, we wanted to make sure folk at home were well covered at short notice.

“We’re really proud of this new and original quick and cold service which is just one of the ways we’re adapting to the ongoing crisis. It will be launched in Edinburgh and Glasgow and then expanded to other areas.

“It has been great to work with Thermo Logistics on it and really pleasing to get some of their drivers back on the road.”
