Out of beer? Amazon will bring it to your door in an hour

Amazon wants to do your beer runs for you.

Prime Now, the company's one-hour delivery service, will now bring beer, wine and alcohol to your door – if you're an Amazon Prime member (membership is $10.99 a month or $99 a year).

Amazon announced the partnership with Surdyk's in an email news release Thursday.

It's available for people in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Eden Prairie, Burnsville, Maple Grove, Andover, Woodbury and White Bear Lake.

One-hour delivery is $7.99, while two-hour delivery is free. The service is available Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. You can order through the Prime Now app or online.

CNN Money said using the Prime Now app to order two bottles of wine was "seamless." But don't think you can get away with getting alcohol if you're not old enough to drink legally – the publication says the app doesn't make you verify your age, but the delivery driver checks your ID.

Amazon decided to offer alcohol delivery due to the popularity of it in other cities, including Chicago, New York, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle, according to the release.

The company launched Prime Now in the Twin Cities last fall, and says people are "loving" it – the most popular items people bought are orange juice, bananas and Haribo gummy bears, the release notes.

Amazon isn't the first company to offer alcohol delivery in the Twin Cities. Drinkfly launched in the area back in 2014, and Drizly started delivering booze in 2015.

City Pages published an alcohol delivery guide last year, noting other companies like BiteSquad and Minibar deliver alcohol, as well as individual liquor stores.
