Through Mercury, you get the same, fresh, limited released cans that are available in our West Chester, PA taproom, but delivered straight to your door.
Packaging and shipping beer isn't cheap, we're not profiting off of shipping and handling. Our cost is your cost. Initially you're going to think that 4-packs costing $16 to $22 each, plus the cost of shipping is a bit much, however let's do the math.
Here are a few examples to put things in perspective assuming the average gas price is $2.95/gallon and the average car gets 23.6mpg, and an hour of your free time is worth $10/hour:
- You live just 35 miles from Levante down in Fishtown, gas alone for the round trip will cost you $8.60. You just spent two hours in a car costing $20. Maybe even longer if you took the expressway. That's $28.60.
- You live 50 miles from Levante in Bensalem, PA, gas alone for the round trip will cost you $12.39. You just spent three hours in a car costing $30. That's $42.39.
- You live in Harrisburg, PA, 84 miles from Levante, gas alone for the round trip will cost you $20.64. If you came down Route 30, you got stuck in single lane traffic. You just spent 3.4 hours in a car costing $34. That's $54.64.
- You live in State College, PA, 180 miles from Levante, gas alone for the round trip will cost you $44.24. You just spent 6.6 hours in a car costing $66 dodging accidents and construction delays. That's $110.24.
- You live in Pittsburgh, PA, 300 miles from Levante, gas alone for the round trip will cost you $74!! You just spent 10 hours in a car costing $100 of your time! That's $174 to come get our beer!! Nope.
Mercury will bring your beer to you, anywhere in the state of Pennsylvania for around $15*
We understand and appreciate that Levante cans are a discretionary purchase and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our brewery. We know money doesn't grow on trees and that you have plenty of cheaper options for beer, and we know this service is not for everyone. It's for people who want the freshest Levante beer possible and you want it soon and you can't make the can releases, or you live 50, 100, 200+ miles away.
We understand, we get it. That's why there's Mercury.
If you have any problems or questions at all, please contact us.
Thank you and much love from all of us over here on Carter Drive!
