Starbucks to offer Beer and Wine in Atlanta

Alpharetta Hwy Starbucks

This came across several different news websites, but I’ll quote Atlanta’s WSBTV, (link to article can be found here). Starbucks will be offering beer and wine at some on its Atlanta locations:

This Starbucks is close to our house!


Several metro Atlanta Starbucks stores will soon feature beer and wine on the menu.

Metro Atlanta is part of a small test market where the coffee shop will start to sell alcohol. It will arrive at three stores in Atlanta and Roswell as early as this fall.

On Thursday, Roswell officials approved an alcohol license and Sunday sales for the store on Alpharetta Highway.


If you read the article, you’ll see not everyone is happy with it.  Some people worry it will entice teenagers.  For now, I’ll probably just stick with coffee when I hit Starbucks in the afternoon, but it’s nice to see Atlanta is catching up with the rest of the county.

I’d love to hear your thoughts! Leave a comment!
