LOS ANGELES (CBS) —A tall skinny vanilla latte and . . . a beer.

Starbucks announced Monday that four to six remodeled and yet to be determined Los Angeles shops will offer beer and wine to customers by the end of 2012.

Select stores in Atlanta and Chicago will also sell alcohol.

Beer and wine, offered to customers for $5 to $9, has been sold in some of the chain’s Seattle shops since 2010.

Starbucks has not announced what brand of beer and wine they will carry locally.

Burger King and Sonic have also recently announced the sale of alcohol at some of their restaurant locations.
