Here’s something to make the food slide down a little easier: White Castle, the 90-year-old hamburger chain, is testing wine and beer in one of its restaurants in central Indiana.

The wine – a choice of two reds and two whites – comes in “a nice plastic cup, (with) the look of an elegant cocktail glass,” says White Castle spokesman Jamie Richardson. You’ll pay $4.50 for a one-serving bottle, he said.

Or, there’s beer, including a seasonal microbrew – “A nice complement to the pulled pork with barbecue or a double cheese burger,” Richardson said. Beers start at $3.

Alas, the concept isn’t coming to Chicago any time soon, Richardson said. The alcohol is being tested at a Lafayette, Ind., location that combines a traditional White Castle with a Blaze Modern BBQ, a new restaurant concept also being tried out.
