Relaxing With a Beer at Starbucks

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- More Starbucks (SBUX - Get Report) customers will be getting the option to kick back with an alcoholic beverage by the end of this year.

The coffee retailer said Monday that it plans to add beer and wine to its menu at about five locations in Atlanta and Southern California by the end of the year. It was already planning on a similar rollout of these offerings for six locations near Chicago in 2012. Five stores near Seattle as well as one in Portland currently offer wine and beer on their menus.

"We're pleased with the response of our customers to the introduction of wine, beer and premium food at several of our stores in the Pacific Northwest, and we're excited to see how the idea translates to other markets," senior vice president of U.S. operations Clarice Turner said in a statement.

The locations that are offering beer and wine will also feature hot flatbreads and some new snacks to potentially pair with these beverages.
