MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Five Starbucks locations in Washington, D.C. began serving wine, beer and other small plates Tuesday afternoon. It is part of the Seattle-based coffee company’s strategy to increase sagging revenue by trying to capture the happy hour adult crowd.
Not to be outdone, Starbucks Philippines has announced that effective this Friday, its locations across the country will start serving San Miguel Beer, along with a Filipino favorite appetizer, sisig. The new menu will be available every day after 5 p.m.
As part of its initial promotional period, Starbucks will serve complimentary sisig for every bucket of San Mig Light purchased by customers.
Customers under the age of 21 will not be allowed to purchase beer, but senior citizens will be entitled to the usual 20% off.
