Here’s something to make the food slide down a little easier: White Castle, the 90-year-old hamburger chain, is testing wine and beer in one of its restaurants in central Indiana.
The wine — a choice of two reds and two whites — comes in “a nice plastic cup, (with) the look of an elegant cocktail glass,” says White Castle spokesman Jamie Richardson.
You’ll pay $4.50 for a one-serving bottle, he said.
Or, there’s beer, including a seasonal microbrew — “A nice complement to the pulled pork with barbecue or a double cheese burger,” Richardson said. Beers start at $3.
Alas, the concept isn’t coming to Chicago any time soon, Richardson said.
The alcohol is being tested at a Lafayette, Ind. location that combines a traditional White Castle burger joint with a Blaze Modern BBQ, a new restaurant concept also being tried out.
