After the ‘pigeon postman’ concept of olden era, the new trend is of ‘eagle deliverer’. Intrigued? Now you can chill out while sipping a cold beer delivered by a bald eagle. If you need a drink, call Hercules.
This interesting service is introduced by a brewery that is offering its customers some unique and innovative transport for their beloved brews: a four-year-old bald eagle, who will be used to deliver beer.
Unveiling the ‘Beer From A Bird’ scheme, Phillips Brewing has announced the contest. It is offering the winner a visit from their feathered friend Hercules, which will be delivering the company’s new pilsner. It is the firm’s retro response to Amazon.com’s drone delivery. For the contest, the brewery has tied up with Duncan-based Pacific Northwest Raptors. The latter aims to increase awareness and encourage conservation for birds of prey, and is the one to supply Hercules.
Located in Vancouver Island, Canada, the company was initially restricted from attempting the stunt by the Ministry of Forests, speculating that it might harm the bird. The good news is that birds of prey experts at the city’s Raptors Center have stated that it’s safe for Hercules. Thus, the scheme is back on.

The delivery is yet to take place and is slated for June 5. On the day, people may witness Hercules flying a lucky beer fan’s order to downtown Vancouver or it could take place at the eagle’s home, reported Mirror.
“It has to be a pretty controlled situation to make sure everyone is comfortable,” Robyn Radcliffe, the Raptor Center’s general manager said. He also added, “[Hercules] is flying free, so he’s doing these things if he chooses to, and if he does not, he can go and fly off into a tree or fly away. He won’t be flying that far. Half a kilometer, probably. It’s sort of up to him.”
Radcliffe also notes that the four-year-old eagle Hercules has an “incredible” temperament and has appeared in other films and commercials in the past, reported CBC.
