Alcohol Laws - Have you ever heard that Utah's alcohol laws were a little strange? Well not anymore! Beginning July 1, 2009, The Utah Legislature no longer requires clubs and bars to charge patrons a membership fee upon entering a drinking establishment.
This followed a 2008 change that increased the amount of a single shot by 50%, from 1 ounce to 1.5 ounces.
Utah's first distillery since Prohibition opened its doors in Park City in July 2009, and is located in a renovated 100-year-old livery stable near the base of the Town Lift on Park Avenue.
The High West Distillery is a ski-in/ski-out restaurant and saloon that features craft vodkas, whiskeys and a small-plate menu. With liquor already in production, High West Distillery has garnered numerous prestigious awards, including the Double Gold for its Rendezvous Rye Whiskey at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
