Here's how it works:

When you place your boozy order through the app, you must undergo a 2-step identification process.

  • Upload a picture of your ID through the app for your order to go through.
  • You MUST meet your delivery driver at the door - no contactless delivery.
  • Your driver will scan your ID in person.
  • Enjoy!

There ARE restrictions/protocols:

When it comes to alcohol consumption, things can get hairy with the law, so DoorDash is being extra cautious with rigorous safety compliance protocols.

  • Alcohol delivery will not be available at college campuses, hotels, offices, and BYOB restaurants
  • DoorDash drivers delivering alcohol will have to be over the age of 21, pass an alcohol compliance test, and be background checked
  • Drivers cannot deliver to customers who are already intoxicated.
