With Brew Movers, you can send your craft beers, wines, or sodas anywhere and everywhere via direct-to-consumer (DTC) shipping. No intermediaries or headaches—just your drinks tasting as if they’ve been poured right from the source, delivered directly to your customers’ doorsteps.

“Working with Brew Movers this past year has truly been a dream come true for the Deutsche Family and we look forward to the great service and quick turn arounds of our shipments in 2020 thank you so much to everyone at Brew Movers


— Doug, Deutsche Beverage Technology
Brew Movers has helped us transport brewery equipment, beer for out of state festivals, and beer ingredients several times over the past two years without any apprehension. The aggressive pricing and the quick response times means I will continue to use them whenever possible in the future.


— Jamie, Head Brewer & Owner: Southern Grist Brewery
We have used Brew Movers for shipping everything from a few cases to a 10 barrel system with great results! The Brew Movers crew is always super speedy and professional. So happy we made the switch!


— Megan, Business Mgr - Side Project Brewing
Brew Movers is the best in the business. Got hired on with my company with little knowledge in truckload shipping and LTL. Maria and Laura taught me everything I know today! They are the best! Both have pulled off some real magic, getting recovery trucks when things go wrong is never a problem for them! Love this company!


— Ryan Castro
Great team to work with. Excellent communication are their team and their online tracking platform and dashboard are so helpful. They are very customer focused and have always taken good care of us.


— Matt Virgil

Brew Movers is a fantastic freight company that specializes in shipping beer and brewing supplies. Their customer service is best in class, and I'd recommend them to any company looking for affordable freight rates in the US and Canada.

Brandon and his crew were amazing to work with. They shipped an entire brewhouse for us. Truck arrived on time and nothing was damaged. I highly recommend these guys for any equipment shipping or tank shipping needs.


— Martin S
We have been using Brew Movers and we are extremely pleased with them. Whenever we can, we prefer to ship with them! Great customer service: Not only do we get a promptly response regarding estimates, but outstanding communication from pickup to final delivery. Brandon is our rep, and he always finds the best shipping costs, as well as getting last minute shipping arrangements, all done with a smile over the phone and the courtesy of getting the job done properly. I highly recommend this company!

Benefits of DTC Alcohol Shipping

There’s a growing market for alcohol delivery services, ranging from local craft beer enthusiasts to wine lovers. 

In order to meet these demands, DTC allows craft beverage producers to have more control over the customer experience. Take advantage of another revenue stream by selling your products directly to customers through online platforms, subscription services, and other channels—bypassing traditional retail networks. By eliminating the middleman, you can offer your products at more competitive prices while maintaining higher profit margins.

Who Needs DTC Shipping?

Who wouldn’t love to crack open a cold can of hard seltzer at the end of a grueling day? Let us help you become the go-to brand for that experience.

Brew Movers is your best choice for direct-to-consumer seltzer shipping. Forget about paperwork and compliance headaches—we’ll take care of that. Whether it’s a single can or a crate, our DTC services are adaptable to your specific demands. Plus, with our cold chain shipping solutions, freshness is guaranteed no matter the destination.

Who Needs DTC Shipping?

Want in? Here’s who we provide DTC shipping services for:

Breweries

While the three-tier system of alcohol distribution limits DTC beer shipping, a handful of states including Ohio and Oregon permit breweries to go direct. This opens new revenue streams and consumer bases, limited only by geography.

Cideries

Regulations around cider classification vary per state; it could be classified as beer, wine, or something else entirely. Despite this, DTC shipping for cideries offers a chance to reach their consumer base directly by taking advantage of their unique classification.

Wineries

DTC shipping for wine is allowed in 47 states, meaning wineries should look to capitalize on this expansion opportunity. Do that some states like Mississippi remain a no-go, so due diligence is still essential.

Distilleries

Distilleries may have the tightest restrictions on DTC shipping, but Alaska, Kentucky, and five other states have already offered some leeway for DTC shipments. These limited opportunities could be the gateway to more extensive market penetration.

Retailers

Expand your distribution channels, reach a wider online audience, and streamline order fulfillment for direct sales to consumers through your e-commerce platform with our help.

International Shipping

Expand your seltzer empire to customers beyond borders and we navigate customs and regulations for you.

DTC Alcohol Shipping Basics

State laws vary when it comes to DTC shipping. Non-compliance poses serious legal risks, whether it’s licensing, taxes, or interstate shipping laws. Working with a knowledgeable partner like Brew Movers ensures you adhere to these regulations. 

We’ll help you sort out the following:

  1. How to deliver goods using a common carrier like FedEx or UPS
  2. How to acquire DTC shipping licenses as per state regulations
  3. How to understand the process of paying taxes in the destination state

So whether you’re stressing about compliance laws across multiple states or keeping shipping costs on a tight budget, we’re here to help. We’ll navigate the licensing and tax requirements on your behalf so you can sell directly to your patrons.
