You can get beer at Burger King outlets in Germany, Singapore and Venezuela. In Japan, you can even get some whiskey with your Whopper. And, now, the U.S. becomes the latest country where you can really have it your way, at least in one “Whopper Bar” in Florida’s South Beach.
According to USA Today, the new restaurant will open in mid-February, and could be the first of several brew-and-burger shops:
Don’t look for beer at conventional Burger Kings. That’s not in the plans. But more Whopper Bars — which offer an assortment of burgers, toppings and beer — could be on tap in tourist hot spots such as New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, says Chuck Fallon, president of Burger King North America.
A brewski at the new Whopper Bar — served in special aluminum bottles to keep them extra cold — fetches $4.25. Or, order beer as part of a Whopper combo and your bill will be $7.99 — roughly $2 more than the same combo meal with a fountain drink.
If you don’t live in one of the potential Whopper Bar locations, you could try bringing your own — but don’t toss the bottle through the restaurant’s door if they kick you out.
