If you’re into craft beer and wine, then you know how difficult it can be to find a specific producer in any given region. Part of what makes craft products so crafty is that they come from small facilities that often don’t distribute far beyond their specific area. This can be quite problematic if you’ve ever relocated after developing a fixation on beer or wine that is exclusive to your former location. Thankfully there are a few purveyors out there who can help you overcome these unfortunate obstacles. And happier we all are to have them in our lives.
One such savior is Red Carpet Wine & Spirits Merchants (400 E Glenoaks Boulevard) in Glendale, California. In existence for nearly 50 years, since before there ever was a craft scene in the United States, Red Carpet has had plenty of time over the years to develop lasting relationships with quality producers from all up and down the West Coast. The result is hundreds of bottles of quality wine and beer that can be shipped right to your door almost anywhere in the continental United States. Shipping perishable items stored in fragile glass containers isn’t easy. It takes careful consideration and money. But if you’re willing to pay the added price, Red Carpet is willing to provide you with the booze that you’d have no other way of getting your hands on—which theoretically makes it quite priceless. And if you find yourself in Southern California, they also have a warm and inviting space that’s worth checking out. Large beer coolers line the walls, containing precious bottles from around the globe. They recently installed a draft beer station with six rotating taps. So stop in and grab a cold one, or if you don’t feel like leaving home, check out their site and have some shipped right to your front door.
