Utah's Liquor Laws
Utah has recently modernized its liquor laws. Adults of legal age can order and consume beer, wine and hard liquor at bars, pubs, restaurants and a variety of other establishments throughout the state. In the past, a "private club membership" was required to enter bars. That requirement has been eliminated.
- You must be 21 to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages in Utah. Alcoholic beverages (wine, liquor, and beer) are available two ways in Utah: by the drink, or packaged by the bottle.
- Mixed drinks and wine may be ordered with food in most restaurants from noon to 1:00am, and beer may be ordered from 10 am-1 am. Patrons may be served at their tables or in waiting areas.
- Taverns and beer establishments sell beer from 10 am-1 am. This includes a variety of venues: taverns, lounges, cabarets, nightclubs, cafes, bowling centers, golf courses, etc. Beer may be purchased without ordering food and is sold on draft and in bottles and cans. Beer sales "to go" are also allowed, but not in open containers.
- Packaged beer is also available at supermarkets, grocery and convenience stores. The maximum alcohol content is four percent by volume, or 3.2 percent by weight for beer sold in taverns, beer establishments and stores.
- Packaged liquor, wine, and heavy beer "to go" are sold at state liquor stores throughout Utah. State liquor stores accept cash, check, and credit cards, and are closed on Sundays and holidays.
- Other package agencies are often located in hotels and resorts for customer convenience. Many hotels and resorts offer alcoholic beverages via room service.
