Fast food junkies overseas could soon chase their Chicken Fries with a cold one: Burger King UK plans to begin serving beer this month, reports The Independent.

BK will keep it classy by serving beer in plastic bottles (naturally). The chain has applied for alcohol licenses at four of its 654 UK locations, which would enable the restaurants to serve beer from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Nothing like a nice cold Guinness to accompany your morning Crossan'wich.

As The Independent notes, "Burger King already sells alcohol in some parts of the US, Singapore, Venezuela and Spain through its’ kiosk-style Whopper Bars." Outposts of said Whopper Bar can be found stateside in South Beach, Las Vegas, and Kansas City.

BK's not the only fast food chain to sling booze, either: Yum Brands recently debuted a Taco Bell Cantina concept in Chicago that serves beer, wine, and "Twisted Freezes" spiked with vodka, tequila, or rum. Even Starbucks seems intent on offering customers a different sort of buzz, with plans to sell beer and wine in the evenings at thousands of its stores; the "Evenings" menu has already rolled out at a number of stores, including several in Chicago.
