Home Delivery of Beau’s Beer Coming Soon to Ottawa

Ottawa, ON

New “BYBO” service delivers Beau’s beer to your door, and helps a good cause


A new home delivery service, set to launch November 24 in the City of Ottawa, will get Beau’s All Natural beer all the way from Vankleek Hill to your door — with a charitable twist. A variety of Beau’s brands can be pre-ordered by Ottawa residents online via the Beau’s website, then will be delivered by Operation Come Home, a local not-for-profit organization dedicated to assisting street youth. The service is called “BYBO,” which stands for “Buy Your Beau’s Online.”

“Offering home beer delivery through a charitable organization is a pretty revolutionary model,” explains brewery co-founder Steve Beauchesne. “The fact that Operation Come Home was already collecting and returning our empty bottles through BottleWorks made the collaboration a bit easier though,” he adds. “For years people in Ottawa have been telling us they love our unique packaging and specialty beers, but find the hour’s drive out to Vankleek Hill difficult. This service is great for folks in Ottawa, and helps at-risk youth at the same time.”
The BYBO service is simple and easy-to-use. Clients will be able to shop for a variety of Beau’s brands and merchandise online at the Beau’s website, www.beaus.ca, as well as a standalone new site,www.bybo.ca. Checkout and payment is done online via PayPal, and the order is confirmed by email. The orders are delivered in the evening within 72 hours, based on the delivery routes used by Operation Come Home — clients receive confirmation of their order by phone the day of delivery. The delivery “fee” of $15 is collected by Operation Come Home, and a charitable receipt is issued to the purchaser for a portion. The service will even collect empty Beau’s beer bottles upon request.
“Now you can buy your beer from Beau’s, and at the same time create jobs for homeless youth,” says Elspeth McKay, Executive Director of Operation Come Home.
The online portion of the BYBO home delivery service launches in the City of Ottawa November 23, with delivery service to begin the next day. Postal codes eligible for home delivery are: (West Route) K2A, K2B, K2E, K2G; (Central Route) K1Y, K1R, K1P, K2P, K1S, K1H, K1Z, K2C; (East Route) K1M, K1N, K1L, K1K, K1J, K1G, K1B. Additional information about the BYBO service will be posted online at www.beaus.ca in the next few weeks approaching the delivery launch date of November 24.
