Utah Liquor Laws
Utah Liquor Laws - Getting a drink in Utah just got easier. Following decades of baffling visitors with its quirky liquor laws, Utah Legislators passed sweeping changes to the State's often criticized liquor laws, including the elimination of the State's private club system and membership requirement, a move that will simply add to Park City's ever-growing attributes as a world-class convention and tourism destination. Park City makes it even easier with more alcoholic beverage businesses per capita than any other place in the state. So whether you're looking for a local brew or just a glass of wine, you won't be left high and dry.
Below is some specific information about getting a drink during your vacation.
- Beer - You can purchase 3.2% beer at the grocery and convenience stores. 3.2% beer is also served in restaurants that only have beer licenses. Full-strength beer is for sale at state liquor stores (see addresses below) and is sold in private clubs and restaurants with liquor licenses.
- Wine - Wine is served in restaurants and bars and can be purchased at the state liquor stores.
- Liquor - You can buy liquor at state liquor stores and purchase it by the drink in most restaurants (if you order food) and all bars (without ordering food).
