All day breakfast, check. High end burgers, check. Beer? Check.
A McDonald’s franchise in South Korea is set to begin selling brews in what they hope will help boost sales and lure in a younger clientele. (The legal drinking age in South Korea is 19.)
Already a staple in France and Germany, the company said on Sunday that a restaurant in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province --outside of Seoul --will serve premium hamburgers and draft beer, according to Pulse. If successful, it plans to open similar stores in Gangnam and Sinchon, areas popular with young people in Seoul.
The move comes as the number of teenage customers visiting the Golden Arches has sharply dropped in the country. So the obviously question is could we see beer at McDonald’s in the U.S.? While there are no McDonald’s restaurants that currently serve alcohol in the U.S., many have argued that adding craft beer to the menu from local brews would score some serious points with customers. Burgers and beer are a classic combo, but for now you'll have to head to Europe or Asia to get a brew with your Big Mac. However, it is possible that McDonald's in the U.S. will be serving beer soon.
