These Broward County Starbucks Stores Will Now Be Serving Up Beer And Wine With New Evenings Menu
Starbucks has figured out a way to get us through its doors morning (caffeine, duh), noon (treat receipt) and night (alcohol, please).
The coffee chain told USA Today it would be expanding its Evenings program, which features a menu with beer, wine and small plates such as truffle mac & cheese, bacon-wrapped dates, and flatbreads. According to the Starbucks store locator, four Broward County locations will be serving up the dishes:
- Pines Blvd & 96th - 9700 Pines Blvd. in Pembroke Pines (Starting Aug. 18)
- NW 136th Ave & I-595 - 101 NW 136th Ave. in Sunrise (Starting in late September)
- Sawgrass Rd & Lyons Rd - 6111 Lyons Road, Space 101 in Coconut Creek (Starting Aug. 18)
- Hillsboro Blvd & Powerline Road - 3349 W. Hillsboro Blvd. in Deerfield Beach (Starting Aug. 18)
First rolled out in Seattle in 2010, the Evenings program was developed to fill the need for a casual meeting environment after the workday. After doing some research, Starbucks says it found that its customers were more likely to drink beer and wine than the general U.S. population.
But don’t think you’ll find the same items on Evenings menus across the country. The wine and beer selection varies per region, with stores even featuring brews from area breweries.
“For instance, in the Pacific Northwest, customers will find Malbec, Alamos, Argentina and craft beer from Maritime Brewery, Old Seattle Lager,” Starbucks said in a news release. “Those in Chicago are offered Malbec, Terrazas, Argentina and craft beer from Goose Island, Chicago, Goose IPA. This results in a combination of local and regional favorites that rotate over time.”
The news comes on the same day that Starbucks announced its insanely popular Pumpkin Spice Latte will now be made with real pumpkin.
