British Columbia Service Standards

BDL provides all* customers within the Province of BC, delivery of all brewery products distributed by BDL to the customer’s primary acceptance area on their scheduled delivery day(s). Any order placed and paid for before 12:00 Noon (PST) 48 hours prior to the scheduled delivery day, will be shipped from BDL, as per your next scheduled delivery day.
Additionally, BDL will pick up all properly prepared empty containers (including mixed containers) and kegs, originally supplied by BDL, from a customer location and return them to our warehouse at no charge to the customer upon completion of each full goods delivery.

The foregoing is our “base level” of customer service, however, we will continually strive to exceed this standard in order to best meet our customers’ needs while, at the same time, maintaining a highly efficient distribution system which minimizes impact on product pricing.
