The most popular bar drinks at restaurants and bars in the U.S. have all been banned in recent years.
But one brand, Bar-B-Q, has quietly become popular among bar patrons.
It is the same brand that is banned at the nation’s five biggest bars, including The Grove, the most famous bar in Atlanta.
In a statement to TIME, Bar B-Q said it was reviewing its drinking policies.
“Bar B-Que’s commitment to safety and customer experience is one of the company’s core values, and we will continue to actively work with the Atlanta Police Department to ensure our bar remains an enjoyable and safe environment for all patrons,” the company said.
The bar’s founder, Jim Barretts, told TIME that the new policy has made the bar safer.
“It’s a lot more relaxed,” he said.
“They’re talking about more people, less staff, more alcohol.
It’s a whole new way to drink.”
Bar B, which is based in New York, began selling in the New York area in 2010 and is now one of a handful of chains in the country.
It was started by Barretters father, Jim, who worked for the company from 1991 to 1997.
Jim Barretter has been involved with the chain for 30 years.
He is the founder of the chain’s parent company, The Bar-Q Group, which owns more than 1,200 restaurants in 46 states.
Jim told TIME the new ban on bar drinks was a response to a string of police-involved deaths of young black men in Atlanta, Georgia, and the South, where bars and barside bars have become targets of police brutality.
“We’ve seen a lot of things that have happened, where a lot police are involved, and there is a lot less drinking and a lot fewer people in bars,” he told TIME.
“So we want to make sure we have the safest place possible.”
Bar-BQ’s decision comes on the heels of a federal court ruling that the country’s most popular drinks — beer and wine — should be prohibited in bars.
The decision was handed down last week by a panel of the U,S.
Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
The ruling came just days after President Donald Trump signed a sweeping executive order to temporarily ban all alcohol in the United States.
The executive order does not ban beer and bourbon, which are popular drinks for the black population, and wine, which the majority of Americans drink.
It does ban alcoholic beverages, including beer, and bar food.
A spokeswoman for the Atlanta-based Bar-T-Mart said the company is reviewing the ruling and that it would respond in the next few days.
“We are disappointed in this ruling and have taken a careful and careful look at it,” she told TIME by email.
“However, we remain committed to serving customers at our restaurants, and have been in contact with the Georgia Attorney General’s office to learn their thoughts.”
In a separate statement to Time, the company also said it will continue its efforts to provide the best service to its customers.
“Our focus is always on serving our customers with the freshest and most delicious beverage, and this ban on beer and alcohol in bars is an important step in our efforts to achieve that goal,” the statement said.
Bar-T Mart has about 6,600 restaurants in 39 states, and sells about $1.3 trillion in food, beverage and other items each year.
