Brooks shared his thoughts after a transphobic boycott of Bud Light.
“I want it to be a place you feel safe in. I want it to be a place where you feel like there are manners and people like one another,” Brooks said about his new business.
“And yes, we’re going to serve every brand of beer. We just are. It’s not our decision to make. Our thing is this: if you [are let] into this house, love one another. If you’re an asshole, there are plenty of other places on lower Broadway.”
In addition to some customers refusing to buy Bud Light, a number of bars have suspended their distribution of the beer.
Musicians John Rich and Kid Rock, who both own large bars on Broadway in Nashville, have stopped selling Bud Light.
Garth has a long history of allyship with the LGBTQ community. In 1992, Brooks released “We Shall Be Free,” a song condemning homophobia and racism.
