Nothing goes with pizza quite as well as a cold beer, so it's appropriate that Pizza Hut is testing out beer and wine delivery in certain cities.
The pizza chain announced Tuesday, that starting in Phoenix, Arizona, customers will have the option of adding a six-pack of beer to their pizza order for $10.99. Beers available will include Anheuser-Busch (BUD) brands, including Budweiser, Bud Light and Shock Top and Kilt Lifter, which is made by Arizona-based craft brewer Four Peaks.
The chain also plans to roll out wine delivery beginning in January.
The move is Pizza Hut's latest attempt to shore up sales. Parent Yum! Brand (YUM) has been on a tear, with shares up 32 percent this year.
But Pizza Hut hasn't been performing as well as siblings Taco Bell and KFC -- spurring a turnaround effort.
