Hopsy, for the uninitiated, is an online marketplace and delivery service for fresh local craft beer. Previously its services were on the smallish scale — only available in the San Francisco Bay Area — to prove the concept. Now that the one-year old beer delivery service has successfully delivered to more than 10,000 customers, it is ready to take on the rest of California. And we say cheers to that.
“We initially launched our service in the San Francisco Bay Area, limiting delivery to Oakland, Berkeley and most of San Francisco. After a year of operations, and more than 10,000 customers served, we are ready to scale our operations and make our service available throughout California with the same level of quality and freshness,” said Sebastien Tron, Hopsy’s co-founder and CEO.
Fresh beer on demand
Hopsy partners directly with local microbreweries and delivers fresh craft beer to the home, providing unprecedented access to small beer batches typically available only on tap at the breweries themselves. Beer is delivered cold right after it’s been picked up from the breweries, guaranteeing the highest level of freshness.
Beers are available both in glass growlers and in TORPs, a two liter container meant to be tapped in the sub, the draft Hometap appliance manufactured by Krups, the home appliance manufacturer also selling Nespresso coffee machines.
Hopsy currently offers a rotation of more than 40 beers from 20 award-winning Bay Area breweries. Beer enthusiasts across California now have the ability to discover amazing breweries from the East Bay, San Francisco and as far as Sonoma and Half Moon Bay without having to leave their living room. Hopsy will also add San Diego breweries very soon.
