Welcome to The Great Beyond's online shop.
The Great Beyond is a small independent bottleshop at 152 Bell Street Coburg, established in 2019, filling the good booze gap in this neck of the woods. After 15 years in the industry and many trips to surrounding suburbs to quench a thirst, we decided it was time to bring good booze to the 'burg.
We are owned and operated by locals, and work bloody hard to make our 'hood a better place, by contributing to local causes, community organisations, and working with other local businesses every opportunity we get.
Everything stocked by us has been hand picked for it's deliciousness - there's nothing in the shop that we wouldn't drink ourselves and we pride ourselves on that. We choose independent and local first, but won't say no to an absolute classic if there's no local or independent equivalent - or one at a fair price for all.
All goods available on this website are in stock and are good to go, we are a real bricks and mortar outlet employing real people, not an off the shelf booze website package that copies and pastes tasting notes and pictures from wholesale portfolios that orders stock when you do. We taste it all and do all of our own writing. That's what independent means to us.
We hope you can find something you like here, however if there's something awesome that's missing don't hesitate to let us know!
Same day local deliveries
(Skip to the next section if you're not in Melbourne's north)
We deliver orders placed before 4pm to all suburbs within 5km of Coburg every day we are open. Usually Tuesday-Saturday, however some public holidays like Christmas Day & Good Friday we are closed. Suburbs covered by this service include Coburg, Coburg North, Hadfield, Pascoe Vale, Oak Park, Pascoe Vale South, Essendon, Moonee Ponds, Brunswick West, Brunswick, Parkville, Carlton North, Northcote, Thornbury, Preston, Reservoir & Fawkner.
These deliveries are done by our own staff in between 4 & 8pm, drinks are cold and good to go, and are free for orders over $50. Orders under $50 attract a $10 delivery fee. Someone over 18 with ID needs to be present to receive the goods.
Deliveries to workplaces or events can be arranged at a time that suits, too. Contact hello at thegreatbeyond.net.au if you have any inquiries.
We deliver nationwide!
Every day we are open we despatch online orders at 3pm, so that's Tuesday - Saturday (excl some public holidays). We are not locked to a specific carrier, so if you have a preference you can nominate Australia Post, Sendle or anyone else you have in mind. By default we usually choose Sendle as they offset their carbon dioxide emissions, but if you prefer someone else, we'll use them. Just let us know. We charge a simple rate - $10 for orders under $250. That's it. Easy.
Prior to despatching goods on external carriers we check the weather along the route from origin to destination. If warmer weather is forecast, we will contact you and see if you would prefer to wait until a window of cooler shipping weather is available, or if you'd like to proceed regardless.
Express and international services are also available, please contact hello at thegreatbeyond.net.au via email with any express or international queries.
