That's how the story goes,

"So for now, the lone test store will serve a half-dozen kinds of beer and wine, ranging in price from $4 to $7."

Does anyone else foresee the most expensive mocha porter ever?

I wouldn't be so worried about Starbucks cocking this up. It is the imitators. Can you imagine what McDonalds would serve up?

I was in Paris about a decade ago and being a poor student stopped into McDonalds for lunch -- the combo meal included a beer at the same price as a Coke: I think it was a standard BMC type beer.

Redhook used to use & promote Starbucks coffee in the Double Black Stout. Now when they sell it, it just says coffee.

I agree, I get WAYYY better coffee at a local Coffee shop that roast their own beans. I actually used the local shops coffee when I brewed my Raspberry Mocha Stout and it was excellent. However, I used Starbucks with when I did an Irish Coffee Stout and the beer had a burnt flavor from their coffee, that's why you should support local!!
