Peachtree City Brunch Bill Passes

Brunch Bill Passes for Peachtree City, In Effect November 11

On November 6, Peachtree City voters approved the local “Brunch Bill,” which allows restaurants in Peachtree City that serve alcohol on Sundays to begin serving at 11:00 a.m. instead of the previous 12:30 p.m. 

Per the resolution adopted by the Peachtree City Mayor and Council on August 2 calling for the local Brunch Bill referendum, restaurants may begin serving at the earlier time as of this Sunday, November 11.  As always, restaurant owners may choose whether to open and begin serving at the earlier time.

Peachtree City’s Alcohol Ordinance prohibits the sale of alcohol by restaurants and bars between 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. from Monday through Saturday, but sale on Sundays previously could not begin until 12:30 p.m. under state law.  That law was amended during the 2018 Georgia Legislative Session, which allowed cities and counties that already licensed the sale of alcohol by the drink on Sundays to change the starting time to 11:00 a.m. if the majority of voters approved.  The State law also specified the language that every jurisdiction had to place on the ballot.

Council will have an amendment to the City’s Alcoholic Beverage Ordinance on the November 19 agenda to formalize the time change, but the resolution adopted in August specified November 11 as the start date if the Brunch Bill referendum passed.
