New state law requires bar patrons to be 21 and up

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A new state law requires everyone inside a bar to be 21 and up.

House Bill 152 went into effect last Friday.

It also requires all bartenders and bouncers in the bar to be 21 or older.

People under 21 are allowed into the bar if they are with their parent, guardian or spouse who is 21 or older, unless they are attending a concert they paid to see, according to the law.

The Crazy Bull considers itself a concert venue.

The bar posted on Facebook “The new under 21 law takes affect July 1st. 18 to 20 year olds can enter as long as they have paid to see a concert or performing arts show, which is what we do every minute that we are open so 18 to 20 can still enter to watch our concerts and DJ’s perform.”

The law also requires all bars to have liability insurance.

The Crazy Bull owner told 41NBC he has always had liability insurance.

The law also forbids the manufacturing, sale or use of “powdered alcohol.”

Powdered alcohol is defined as “a powdered or crystalline substance that contains any amount of alcohol for direct use or reconstitution, according to the law.
