    It is. I am not a big drinker. The culture is changing faster than the views of the elected officialdom.

    I am not a big drinker either, but my tax money being wasted on things like that would drive me up the wall.

    Sure, there is good session beer at 3.2%... but very few of the styles I like to drink are under 5%.

    Personally, I'm not basing my decision to travel on alcohol, but I think that state mandate is insane.
    I'm not sure this is accurate. I think that's only if you're carrying out. I think any place with a full liquor license (i.e. the bar at the ski hill) can serve full beer.

    No?

    EDIT, googling it, I think you may be right in that all TAP beer at the mountain is limited to 4%. But they can still give you your IPA in a can.

    This is what the internet says:

    Utah drinking laws you need to know
    1. Shotskis are totally allowed
    2. Grocery stores only sell 4% ABV beer (aka the mythical 3.2% ABW* beer)
    3. Tap beers everywhere? Also only 4%.
    4. Bottled beers at bars/restaurants can be whatever % they want (oontz, oontz, oontz)
    5. Shotskis are TOTALLY allowed
    6. If you're at a restaurant, you have to order some kind of food if you wanna drink
    7. Cocktails can only have 1.5oz of their main booze, but you can get a sidecar provided it's not the same as the main booze. Basically get a shot of bourbon with your rye Old Fashioned.

    I don't consider myself a "big" drinker, but I do like my craft beer and some wine with dinner. Utah's laws would drive me insane. It is somewhat surprising that no one has yet found a way to challenge some of them in court when you consider the basis and driving force behind many of those laws.

    I imagine that the DUI bill will be challenged for this reason. There was NO data to support a need for a .05 BAC limit. They just passed it because they felt like it and because the sponsor wanted to get kudos from a certain church.

    Pfffffttt...... Trust me. If I lived in Utah my Irish Catholic azz would make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.

    That's insane too. They're going to stain people forever with a DWI who only have 1 drink. A young girl under 130 pounds will likely be .05 after a glass of wine. That law will probably be repealed once some State Senator's daughter gets a DUI after having 1 martini.

    I dont believe this is the case.

    I accidentally stumbled upon a brew pub in SLC called RedRock and I definitely recall having an IPA from tap, and you cant have a 4% abv IPA. I was at a brew pub at the top of Main Street in Park City and had tap IPAs too. Also, Uinta is located somewhere in Utah (good IPA if you've never had it) and they definitely make beer at > 4%, which I imagine they serve locally.

    Not to continue on with politics, but at least my taxes are not driven up to ridiculous amounts in Utah as they were in VT. I could not stand the other extreme either.
