Here are our Frequently Asked Questions regarding The Bodega – Toronto’s Finest Independent Bottle Shop
Contactless Curbside Delivery
As of October 2021, we have shifted all of our orders to be delivered via Canada Post.
Why? We have found as of late that a lot of people are back at work and no longer working from home. This means that no one is home when we try to deliver and we’re unable to obtain proof of ID and legal drinking age. Legally, we’re not allowed to drop off a Bodega order without being shown ID and proof of legal drinking age.
We have found Canada Post to be a reliable partner with fairly quick delivery times.
Our recommendation? Order early in the week to ensure you have beer for the weekend.
Want your order delivered to a friend, colleague, health care professional? No problem, just indicate that on shipping address and we will confirm with you before shipping.
Beer through the mail?
Yes. And it’s awesome. #canadapost
We ship our orders through Canada Post via Expedited Parcel and they have been a very reliable partner. Generally, you will receive your order within 2 days after your package ships. Looking to have your beer by the weekend? We suggest having your order in by noon on Tuesday.
Want to track your delivery? No problem. You will receive an email with a tracking number once your order has shipped.
You just need to be 19+ years of age or older to purchase alcohol, have an address in Ontario and have valid photo ID as “Proof of Age” on delivery or pick-up.
Where do you ship beer?
We ship beer all across Canada. Shipping rates will vary based on Province.
I’ve ordered beer. When will it ship?
We currently pack and ship our orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Canada Post transit times vary depending on geographic location, but you will receive a tracking number as soon as it ships.
What does the shipping cost?
$10 flat fee everywhere in the Province.
How often do you update the store?
Every time we have something new. As of late, it tends to be every week or two.

Where is the beer brewed?
pEverything available is brewed fresh in Ontario at Brunswick Bierworks in the East York neighbourhood of Toronto.
Why do you brew international beers locally?
Quite simply…freshness. Our partners are focused on quality and freshness. They want their beers enjoyed the way they’re meant to be. Fresh.
Where else can I get your brands?
pSome of our brands are available through The Beer Store and LCBO and at select bars & restaurants. But all are available right here.
Can I purchase in person?
pAt this time, unfortunately we do not have a physical location where you can buy, but we often have pop-ups and do feature products through some of our favourite bar and restaurant partners.
How does the 6IX (mixed pack) work?
We’re glad you asked. This offering consists of 6 beers as chosen by our staff – our current favourites all for a set price.
Tell me about your subscription beer program?
Every quarter (four times per year) we will send out 6 beers as voted on by our staff – think of them as our current favourites. You simply sign up for the subscription program and four times a year a box will show up at your door. Makes a great gift.
