Cobb extends alcohol sales just in time for Super Bowl

Super Bowl fans in Cobb will be able to start drinking at 11 a.m. on Game Day and continue until 2 a.m. after the county approved extended serving hours.

The rule change, passed Tuesday, applies to alcoholic beverages sold by the drink and will be permanent going forward. Previously, bars had to stop serving  just after midnight Monday.

Together with the Brunch Bill, thirsty Cobb residents now have an extra three and a half hours of pour time on Sundays.

In November, voters approved a referendum allowing restaurants and bars to start serving alcohol on Sundays at 11 a.m. rather than 12:30.
