New Yorkers will now be able to order a drink with their brunch, or in some cases, breakfast, at bars and restaurants on Sunday mornings. The current law forbids alcohol sales before noon on Sunday, but when Governor Andrew Cuomo signs the bill into law, alcohol will be available two hours earlier.
Non-alcoholic means “not more than 0.5% A.B.V. (really it should be called “non-intoxicating” beverage rather than non-alcoholic”). So because there is still some alcohol in non-alcoholic beers, U.S. law still regulates those sales to persons 21 and over only.
