Minneapolis has just become the latest city in Amazon Prime’s speedy alcohol delivery service as part of the online retailer’s Prime Now program. The Minnesota city joins San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago and Manhattan, where Amazon lets Prime subscribers order beer, wine and spirits to be delivered straight to their front door.

The well-known Surdyk’s Liquor and Cheese Shop will fulfill the Midwest city’s orders of beer, wine and liquor. With long delivery hours—10 a.m. to 10 p.m.—the new delivery option has already become quite popular in the Twin Cities.

Primarily a grocery delivery service, Prime Now allows users in select metropolitan areas to order a wide array of household items. The delivery fee is $8 for one-hour delivery; two-hour delivery is free. The only catch? You must have an Amazon Prime account, though this boozy addition definitely makes the $99 annual membership fee a little easier to swallow.

If you don’t live in one of the cities mentioned above, fret not: Amazon plans on expanding the program to 20 major cities across the country.
