Drinks delivered to your doorstep. What a wonderful concept. Unfortunately (or fortunately) it’s become a bit of a necessity amid the COVID-19 crisis, and we’re sure hoping this trend is here to stay. If your bar cart is running dry and the fridge is looking depressingly bare, the Gold Coast has plenty of options to top you up.
Whether you enjoy craft beer, gin or a cocktail mixer, we’ve dug up the very best booze delivery and subscriptions the Gold Coast has to offer. Crack open a cold one (delivered directly to your door) and thank us later.
GRANDDAD JACK’S CRAFT DISTILLERY
Granddad Jack’s is a welcome addition to the ever-growing brewery hub of Miami and slings up seriously impressive gin, vodka and whisky. The good peeps at Granddad Jack’s understand the importance of having your bar cart always stocked, which is why they offer free delivery on all of their spirits and liquors over $50, plus free local pickup and delivery options. Legends. They also offer a range of out-of-the-box gift ideas, including booze crates, cocktail sets and gift vouchers.
We’ve had a long love affair with craft beers on the Gold Coast, in fact, we’re fortunate enough to boast more than a handful of award-winning breweries. And while we’re big fans of them all, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t have an extra special place in our heart for Black Hops. If you’re not able to jump on board their epic brewery tours (you’re missing out, trust us), order some brews online and get them delivered straight to your door. Still driving and don’t want to wait for the postie? You can click and collect, and pick up your coldies at either the Burleigh or Biggera Waters taproom.
PRECINCT BREWING CO.
Precinct Brewing is one of the newest breweries on the Gold Coast, but it’s already well and truly earned its spot in our hearts. Precinct is a fully functional brewery, with all beer made from scratch onsite and boasts twelve taps and four direct pour tanks. We did the math, that’s 16 different bars on tap at once. The best news? You can get their delicious—and rotating—flavours delivered straight to your door or you can pick your well-deserved coldies up from the Miami brewery for free.
You’re already spoiled for choice for craft beer delivery and throwing Lost Palms into the mix makes it even harder to decide where to order from. Time to start a bucket list? Get started by browsing the five rotating craft beer options Lost Palms has on offer and place your order, stat. It’s only $8 to ship directly to your order or if you pick up your order from the taproom, it’s free. Now that’s what we call a bargain. If you haven’t visited the vibrant, hot-pink brewery, make sure to pop that one on your bucket list too.

Craving a frothy from Burleigh Brewing? Of course you are. The good folks at one of our favourite craft breweries are doing free shipping nationwide. Can’t decide which goodies to crack open first? We’re a sucker for their iconic Burleigh Fifteen, or if you’re watching your carb intake, grab a pack of the Burleigh Bighead no-carb lager. If you’re able to, we recommend paying a visit to the Burleigh Brewing Taphouse, where you can take a tour of the impressive craft brewery.
If it’s fast booze delivery you’re after, Jimmy Brings is your new best mate. Maybe your precious stocks have diminished mid cocktail party or maybe it’s 5pm on a Friday and you’ve just realised there are zero weekend beers in the house (the horror!). Jimmy Brings promises to drop off your drinks in under 30 minutes, and they have a big range of booze to choose from too. Prep for your espresso martinis, Negronis and G&T’s with their stacked library of spirits, liquor and mixers available; shop classic beers like VB and XXXX, get crafty with brews from the likes of White Rabbit, Mountain Goat or Bent Spoke, or keep it clean with Jimmy’s selection of natural and organic wines.
A collab between local legends Built To Spill and Urban List, Bagnum is an easy-to-pour bagged wine that is every bit classic as it is boujee. Each Bagnum holds a whopping 1.5L of juicy Aussie wine from Sparrow & Vine with three wine varietals on offer: a Bagnum Sangiovese Rosé, a citrusy Semillon Bagnum (white) and a Nero D’Avola Bagnum (red).
Packing a heap of green cred too, Bagnums are packaged in an eco-friendly and fast-chilling AstraPouch—which has an 80 per cent lower carbon footprint than its typical glass iteration. It even has a smart nozzle that activates just by the tap of your finger (read: no leaks) and makes sure your Bagnum stays fresher for longer—sans cork contamination and potential oxidation. The limited-run Bagnum range can be purchased through Built To Spill at $44 a pop and delivered straight to your door. Order yours here.
