Liquor License Liberalization Lessens Local Limitations

Salt Lake City cocktailians will be pleased to learn that some of the restrictions on the number of liquor licenses in Utah have been loosened.  The Salt Lake Tribune reports that 40 beer bar licenses will be converted to restaurant licenses.  This is good news for drinkers, but the bad news is that the number of full bar licenses will not be increased.  Indeed, it turns out that too many full bar licenses were accidentally issued, so no more of them will be forthcoming until Utahans make enough babies to justify issuing more.  Of course, the state never gives without taking away: beer lovers will be sad to learn that mini-kegs are kaput, and daily drink specials have been (no surprise) confirmed to be illegal.  So the drinking weather forecast is partly cloudy with more of the same for the foreseeable future… click through on the above link for details.
