CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A liquor delivery service is available for the Cheyenne community to use, and it’s all driven by a local businesswoman intent on keeping drunk drivers off the streets.

Residents can order alcohol available in DT’s Discount Liquor Store and have it delivered by Sara Gabriel, owner of Deliver My Liquor 307, any time between noon and 11 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

Gabriel launched the independent contracting business and partnered with the store last August, hoping to encourage intoxicated folks to stay inside and to seek sober assistance when getting alcohol.

“The kind of platform we share is that there is no need for people to drive [while intoxicated],” Gabriel said. “Let us do the driving, let us deliver the alcohol. You continue to have fun and we’ll do the hard part.”

Wyoming has the third highest number of DUI arrests per 100,000 licensed drivers in the nation, and local law enforcement officials often raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving.

Gabriel hopes liquor enthusiasts will take advantage of this new service.

“I just want everyone to know that this is safe,” she said. “We’re here to help and this can be great for getting down drunk driving and for introducing people to something new that will open up more avenues.”

Gabriel and her two other workers currently make 10 to 12 deliveries a week, and they plan to add limited Sunday hours in upcoming months.

“It doesn’t seem like a lot of orders right now, but we’re seeing that growth,” Gabriel said. “I can’t wait to see more expansions. We’re only a few months in, but I feel like the sky’s the limit.”

Drinks can be ordered and delivered by filling out an online form, which is only active during Deliver My Liquor’s business hours.

Such services are starting to pop up frequently across the state ever since Governor Gordon signed an April 2021 bill allowing businesses with retail liquor licenses to provide alcohol deliveries to their customers.

Wyoming state law limits the number of available licenses per city, but the bill allows locals like Gabriel to become contractors for these establishments without worrying about liquor distribution restrictions and permits.
