SkiptheDishes Launches Alcohol Delivery in Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray
SkiptheDishes first launched alcohol delivery services in British Columbia and Manitoba in 2017. This year, they’ve announced that they will be offering liquor delivery services in Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray, joining services like Drizly and Buzz Buddy. You read that right, beer geeks; you can now order a beer to pair with your pizza dinner!
The company will also be requiring all of its independently contracted couriers who will be delivering alcohol to go through an onboarding process and obtain ProServe certificates.
Can you order craft beer on SkiptheDishes?
You’re in luck craft beer drinkers! Liquor stores aren’t the only liquor vendors included in SkiptheDishes’ new alcohol delivery services. Many local craft breweries in Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray will also be available on the app, depending on your location.
How do you order liquor on the SkiptheDishes app?
Much like you would food, you can easily order beer on the SkiptheDishes app by selecting a liquor store/retailer available in your area in the app (preferably one that’s close by to get a lower delivery fee) and order your choice of liquor (beer, obviously).
You must be of legal drinking age to order liquor using the SkiptheDishes app. As stated on the app, in order to have your beer delivered to you, you will be required to show ID to your courier and the name on the ID must match the name on the SkiptheDishes account. If it doesn’t match or you’re unable to provide legal photo identification, your order will not be delivered and you can be subject to a penalty of $10 or more.
Now that you can order your beer to your house, check out these beer & food pairing articles that’ll help you decide on what’s for dinner:
