Technomic’s adult beverage data reveals that bartenders are offering a mix of old favorites and new drinks to meet consumer demand.

The family chain intends to go slow in developing a program built on beers, wines and mimosas.

The casual chain reserved $1.8 million from its second-quarter earnings to cover the cost of throwing away unsold suds.

Gov. Greg Abbott signed legislation turning his emergency pandemic measure into law, enabling to-go liquor to be a post-pandemic option for restaurants.

Legislation is pending in 13 states to allow restaurants and bars to continue selling alcohol off-premise.
