At least one city in Gwinnett County will vote on earlier alcohol service at restaurants this year.

Gwinnett County and multiple cities are planning to hold referenda on whether to extend the time during which alcohol can be served on Sundays. Currently, the liquor cabinet must be locked until 12:30 p.m., but under the “Brunch Bill” signed by Gov. Nathan Deal, counties and cities can vote on whether to allow restaurants to serve booze as early as 11 a.m.
