IHOP just upgraded breakfast. Might be the newest boozy brunch hot spot? We shall see but I'm on board for it.
According to ABC7, this roll out is on a franchise by franchise basis but there are hopes that at least 1,000 of the 1,750 locations jump on board. What will those thousand locations serve? Bud Light, Blue Moon, Corona, as well as Barefoot Bubbly Brut, Barefoot Bubbly Chardonnay and Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon are all set to be pouring. Hard liquor is going to be avoided, because we still gotta remember that IHOP is a place you bring your kids after church on Sundays or your grandma to catch up.
You ready to get Barefoot with your chicken and waffles? You better be close to New Mexico. So far, only two New Mexican locations are offering bubbly and pints. San Diego will join the ranks in September and New York, Rhode Island, Maryland and Ohio will follow suit. As a New York local, I'll be patiently waiting.
In the meantime, IHOP, if you're reading this (Drake font) - please bring back collaborations and deliver us another specialty ale. I'd like a repeat of the Keegan Ales brew. #PumpkinBeer season is fast approaching and you can hit the market hot, while promoting the new alcohol beverages in franchises. I'M BEGGING!
