Tanner guests on the latest episode of The New Utah Podcast: Episode 289 – Vegetarians Building Steakhouses. This is her second appearance on the podcast she first appeared on episode 96, which aired almost four years ago.
On the podcast Tanner talks about all the new changes to liquor laws in the state of Utah.
- Utah became the first sate to lower the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) from 0.08% to 0.05% for drivers over the age of 21.
- Retail beer in Utah went from 3.2% alcohol by volume (ABV) to 5% (ABV).
- The new law that allows you to bring up to 9 liters of alcohol into the state when you travel.
Tanner also talked about her experience being a judge at the Utah Wine Festival in Cedar City and how much fun she had being a part of the event. She also talked about the growing number of distilleries, breweries, and wineries in Utah and how the sometimes difficult legal hoops within the state have created a super cool micro brew scene. Many of the spirits that have been brewed in in Utah have gone on to win national awards.
Later in the podcast Tanner and the hosts of the podcast talk about some of the more unique liquor licensees that have been granted in the state including a license for a unique railway experience called Rocky Mountaineer Train, which offers a luxury trip from Moab to Denver. Rocky Mountaineer just obtained a hospitality license and now they are able to serve alcohol on the train.
