Why Utah liquor stores will dump cases of beer down the drain Halloween night

At Midnight, Halloween night, any beer that remains on liquor store shelves — and is 5% alcohol by volume or less — will be poured down the drain. Unless consumers get there first to buy a six-pack or three — probably at a bargain price.
The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control says it has no choice but to “destroy” the unsold brews after Nov. 1, when a new law takes effect changing where beer with an alcohol level up to 5% ABV is sold.

What We’re Drinking: The Great Cheap Beer Debate – February 2019

Here at the Growler, we believe there’s a time and place for every drink. Wine, liquor, N/A options, hard seltzer—even macro beers. Sure, we don’t talk about it much, but sometimes life calls for a basic beer to wash down whatever B.S. happened that day. And what better time to pay homage to our go-to macros than in our Great Debates issue? We invite you to do the same and share your favorite big-name beer with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Let us know if you loathe this idea, too; it is meant to be a debate, after all.
