Utah Closer to Full Strength Draught Beer

The Utah House voted 58-2 earlier this week to scrap a law that mandates draught beer sold in bars and restaurants cannot be stronger than 4 percent alcohol by volume.

Bars can already serve full-strength beer, but they must buy it in bottles or cans from state-run liquor stores and pay the 86 percent markup that consumers pay.

The bill sponsored by Rep. Curtis Oda must now go to the Utah Senate.
