Hopsy Partners With GrubMarket, Expands Delivery Area to the Whole Bay Area

Hopsy, the recently launched online marketplace for local craft beer, today announced a partnership with GrubMarket, the farm to table delivery startup. Beginning today, beer lovers located across the Bay Area can get fresh growlers of craft beer delivered to their doorstep.

Hopsy is the first “brewery-to-table” online marketplace. GrubMarket is the fastest growing online farmers’ market and is an ideal partner to expand our reach and bring local craft beer to more beer lovers.” said Sebastien Tron, Hopsy’s co-founder and CEO. “GrubMarket’s unique logistics system allows us to reach areas we aren’t able to serve, such as Santa Clara County, without sacrificing our commitment to freshness."

The operations between Hopsy and GrubMarket have been streamlined to keep the lead-time as short as possible, and ensure maximum freshness: customers place their order directly to Hospy via GrubMarket for delivery 3 days later. Because Hopsy picks up from its partner breweries each week, orders will always have fresh beer from the brewery.

We found with Hopsy a partner that was sharing our attention to quality, freshness and excellence. Growlers of local craft beer is definitely something our customers will love.
