MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WDTV)-- Sunday the Brunch Bill went into effect. The Brunch Bill allows restaurants, clubs, wineries, breweries or distilleries to serve alcohol after 10 a.m. on Sundays.
The intentions of the bill were that now people could have wine or other beverages during Sunday brunch and allow for wineries and breweries to offer morning tastings.
The City of Morgantown had numerous places serving brunch but today was the first time their costumers were able to enjoy their meal with an alcoholic beverages on the side.
Kim Zweibaum who works at the Fish Bowl said, "We are celebrating the Brunch Bill passing this will be the first time in Morgantown that you can serve a beer at 10 a.m. on Sundays, which is a very exciting time for costumers and employees, staff, neighborhood, the community and visitors that come near and far that come in all weekend especially. The fact that we can serve beer, sangria, mimosas. wine, any kind of cocktail at 10 in the morning now is just an exciting thing for this town. I think especially for the Fish Bowl. I love being able to serve a frosty beer at 11 in the morning now when we open on Sundays rather than a soda or water. Hair of the dog or getting ready for a Steelers game or just ending the weekend the right way, starting off with a beverage is a great thing to do."
With alcohol now being served on a Sunday residents are hoping that people will be responsible and safe.
Josh Fight said, "Alcohol it needs to be the persons responsibility, if they can't take responsibility for their own actions then they should be doing it but with serving it on Sundays the Iron Horse does have a responsibility to make sure if someone comes in and they are not going to be responsible then they shouldn't serve them."
Marios Fish Bowl and Iron Horse Tavern were just two of many restaurants excited to be able to offer their costumers a more exciting experience.
