Supply Drop is an occasional service from Black Hops that we use to send limited releases direct from the brewery to our Gold Coast and Brisbane customers’ houses.
We started Supply Drop as a daily service during the COVID-19 shut down as a way to keep our beer being distributed and keep our sales guys in jobs.
Now that the restrictions are lifting we are keeping Supply Drop as an occasional service that we’ll turn back on for some small batch releases, which were previously only sold via the taproom.
The service provides fresh Black Hops beer direct from the brewery to your home on the day of ordering. You can buy singles, 4 packs or cases and we charge a fixed $5 delivery fee. You can choose from a selection of Black Hops’ Core Range (including Pale Ale, Lay Day and Hornet) on top of the limited release we open the service up for.
How it works
Each day we have a certain amount of drops available in our Gold Coast and Brisbane Drop Zones. When you visit the Supply Drop site or open the Supply Drop mobile app, you are asked for your post code (Brisbane and Gold Coast only), and it will list how many drops are remaining for your delivery zone. If there are drops left for the day, you can make your order and you’ll get your beer on the same day.
We do it this way so as to not overload the drivers and make sure we can offer a great service for everyone who gets their orders in. The downside is however that if you don’t get your orders in early, you may miss out. The remaining drops will always be shown on the page when you go to order, so you will always know if there are spots left and how many.
We deliver in a corridor from Tugun on the south of the Gold Coast to Bracken Ridge in the north of Brisbane.
Here are the specific drop zones.
Brisbane North Drop Zone
Brisbane South Drop Zone
Gold Coast North Drop Zone
