Alberta is finally joining the modern world and all of you lazy college students and stay-at-home beer drinkers can start planning your parties. SkipTheDishes will bring Albertans alcohol now making your late-night beer runs a thing of the past. As of Tuesday, February 18, the food delivery service is bringing tasty drinks to the front doors of three cities in the province.

People in Calgary, Edmonton, and Fort McMurray will have a variety of drinks to choose from all sourced from local liquor stores, breweries, and distilleries.

The company's alcohol couriers were all specially trained for delivering alcohol. They'll ask to see IDs before handing over their goods, reads a disclaimer on their liquor distributor pages.

Plus, if you don't show proper ID when they're delivered, the drinks will be returned and the customer will be fined $10.

If a customer looks obviously intoxicated or underage, the drinks will be taken back and refunded, too, reported CTV News.

"All independently-contracted couriers that deliver alcohol in Alberta hold a ProServe certificate and have undergone an alcohol delivery onboarding process," said the company in a statement to CTV News.

The service has already been wildly popular throughout Canada. Now, with the power to order alcohol, you'll never need to leave the house again.

The distributors are all listed, and the selection in Edmonton includes Omen Brewing, Analog Brewing Company, Evolution Liquor, and Yellowhead Brewery.

To access a world of liquor possibilities, simply enter your address into SkipTheDishes online or on their app.

Then, enter "alcohol" in the search bar and select the brand new category. Choose a distributor, choose your drink, and simply hang out while your drink is delivered.

You won't even need to put on pants (though it's not a bad idea when you answer the door.)

Their expansion into bringing beer joy to Alberta has been a long time coming.

The service has existed in B.C. and Manitoba since 2017, and alternative alcohol delivery services are working in Ontario. 

It's a new and exciting world for food delivery apps in Canada, and we're excited to see where it leads.

Narcity reached out to SkipTheDishes for more info and will update this story.
