Want to buy a cold beer or some warming bourbon to go with your massive beef rib at Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor? Soon, all of your booze-fueled dreams will come true.

Wayne Mueller, owner of the legendary restaurant and grandson of its namesake, posted on Facebook this week that the restaurant had applied for a permit to sell mixed beverage and be open late. He tagged the photo, in which he teased drinks on the menu this summer, #margaritaville and #itsaboutdamntime.

In the comments section, Mueller expounded on the change at the establishment that is currently BYOB: “Yes, it’s been a byob place for about 7 years. Thank you for your continued support during our ‘dry’ era. Recently, we decided to offer convenience to the majority of our patrons wishing to share in libations but for reasons specific to them, are unable to bring it with them. We also hope to participate in the enrichment of the burgeoning night life in Taylor’s downtown district with later hours of operation, beers and spirits, occasional music and special Pitmaster events.  Fun and festive times ahead!!!”
