TORONTO, June 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Grocery Gateway and Steam Whistle Brewing are toasting a new relationship that will see Steam Whistle's Premium Pilsner as part of the Grocery Gateway's product offering. Beginning April 2013, customers ordering through Grocery Gateway will be able to select 12packs of bottles, 6packs of cans or single tallboy cans of the premium Pilsner as part of their grocery order and enjoy the convenience of getting their favourite craft brew delivered fresh and chilled right to their home.
Working with Steam Whistle extends Longo's existing commitment to provide its customers with the best locally made products, in part, through the convenience of Grocery Gateway (a Longo's company). For some time, Longo's Corks Beer and Wine Bar has had a reputation for featuring fine craft made beers and wines from Ontario. Now, Grocery Gateway will deliver Steam Whistle beer right to the doorstep of beer enthusiasts.
"Grocery Gateway is committed to the expansion of its offerings that are available through our online ordering service. We chose Steam Whistle to be a new brand offering because of their local heritage, superior quality and commitment to excellence in customer service," said Stephen Tallevi, General Manager, Grocery Gateway.
"Our brewery motto is to Do one thing really, really well, and our focus is exclusively brewing our celebrated craft Pilsner," said Steam Whistle Brewing co-founder, Greg Taylor. "We are very excited to work with Grocery Gateway to best serve our shared customers."
