Tacoma Stadium District burger joint Shake Shake Shake has added beer beer beer. That's right, friends, we've all heard the rumor that this top-notch burger/fries/shakes hangout was going to add amber to its orange and light blue color scheme. A year and a couple months after it opened, the popular joint now serves beer and wine.

"We brought in beer and wine first," says co-owner Steve Naccarato. "We'll add boozy shakes next week, then specialty cocktails down the road."

Team Shake Shake Shake is still fine-tuning its bar. A former Weekly Volcano scribe is said to be one of the bartenders.

Beers on tap include Tacoma Brewing Company's Broken Window IPA, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Coors Light. Rainier is available in can. Gig Harbor's 7 Seas Brewing's brews will be available soon. Angry Orchard Cider is available to pair with a hickory burger or bacon dog.

"We also have a nice Bellini made from estate grown white peaches and raspberries with Prosecco," says Naccarato. "It's quite good."

Boozy shakes will include an Absinthe shake called The Van Gogh and a Tiger Tini with Almond Roca infused vodka.

Hours will stay the same for now. If there's demand to stay open later, especially in its backyard picnic area during the summer, then Nacarrato says they'll adjust the hours. Music isn't out of the question.

Music, music, music!
