Skeptical Investigation

An Online Liquor-Delivery Service

9ed2432660c1eb19baad4a6c2a085fbfWe’re lovers. You know that. But every now and again, something comes across our desks that just seems... suspicious. Because of the tremendous material upside to all our lives if these claims pan out, we at times put ourselves in harm’s way to investigate. Albeit skeptically.

We call it: Skeptical Investigation. (Trademark pending.)

THE CLAIM
A new-to-town website called Qwiker Liquor has the noble goal of becoming the GrubHub for liquor stores by delivering your favorite libations to your door in an hour or less. It was either that or curing cancer. We admire their courage.

THE INVESTIGATION
The service is currently in beta for Chicago (they also serve New York and LA). They only have a handful of liquor stores participating.

This weekend, our intrepid lead investigator was too afraid to face marauding green hordes to get his St. Paddy’s supplies: a giant bottle of Irish whiskey, a sixer of Guinness and a case of green beer. Actually, this makes the investigator more of a coward than intrepid. Anyway, he turned to this service for help.

THE VERDICT
The whiskey and the stout arrived precisely 43 minutes after placing the order. The liquor store, however, did not stock green beer.

So... another test passed.
