The scope of delivery options vary by jurisdiction. All retailers are encouraged to consult their retail permit and local laws to confirm whether off-premises delivery is permitted and if so for what types of beverages and under what conditions.

In states with strict county wet/dry laws, such as Kentucky and Texas, alcohol delivery is limited to and from specific areas. Please contact our team for more information.

If you’re a restaurant, log in to add alcohol to your offerings. Availability of wine, beer, and spirits delivery for restaurants varies by local state and province regulations. For example, some jurisdictions require food to be purchased with alcohol orders.

Dashers are prompted to scan the front of a customer’s ID with the DoorDash app to verify their identity prior to handing off and completing the delivery. After verifying the customer’s identity and checking for any signs of intoxication, the delivery may be completed. Customers will also be reminded that they must be at the door with a valid ID when the delivery is being made. 

Alcohol retailers partner with available, eligible Dashers to deliver wine, beer, and spirits to local customers.

Dashers must be of legal drinking age to be assigned an alcohol order, usually at least 21 years of age. 

Some jurisdictions have additional requirements for Dashers, such as an alcohol safety course.  Where those requirements are in place, DoorDash ensures only eligible Dashers who have completed those steps are assigned to alcohol delivery orders.

Customers are able to find and browse your store through the DoorDash app or website or your own website with Storefront, and select items to purchase—similar to any other DoorDash order. At checkout, however, the customer is served an alcohol warning and must agree to age verification terms. These terms state that the order recipient is of legal drinking age in their jurisdiction and will present a valid government ID when receiving the order.

Once the Dasher arrives, the customer presents their government ID which is scanned or manually entered by the Dasher to verify the age of the recipient. The law requires that Dashers cannot deliver the order if the customer is not of legal drinking age in that jurisdiction, their ID is expired, the photo doesn’t match the person, or they appear to be intoxicated. 

Only customers who are of legal drinking age in the jurisdiction, have a valid non-expired photo ID, and are not visibly intoxicated are eligible to buy alcohol through DoorDash.

DoorDash facilitates a variety of alcohol deliveries, including liquor delivery, beer delivery, and wine delivery. Whether you’re a wine shop looking for a wine delivery service, or a convenience store looking to partner for quick liquor delivery in your area, DoorDash has you covered.
