Everybody knows how hard it is to get an adult beverage with dinner around here, so yay for the beer drinkers who now can enjoy La Frontera restaurant a little more! I'm not a beer drinker, so I was hoping for a glass of wine to become available. Not so.

Typical for Utah....story goes that city denied liquor license originally to Olive Garden. Told them they should relocate, too close to other establishments selling liquor. Olive Garden said fine, we won't build and you can tell people the reason taxes are higher here is because you tossed out all the revenue in taxes by not granting license. Strange, they got the license as well as many nearby establishments. Good ole dollar trumps all.

I'll have to give La Frontera a try. My wife and I sometimes order drinks when dining out - beer for me, wine for her. I don't recall too many places we couldn't get and adult beverage at most restaurants. I think most of the main chain and nicer local eateries serve wine and beer. I could be wrong since we don't order drinks every time we dine.

Also, I get a lot of razzing from family/friends visiting about our sissy 3.2 beer. Did you know that number is Alcohol By Weight (ABW) and not Alcohol By Volume (ABV). ABW is an outdated way to measure alcohol content and almost everyone (domestic and international breweries) now uses ABV. ABW is 80% of ABV, so a 3.2ABW beer is actually 4.0ABV. Most non-Utah light beers are in the 4.3 ABV range. Regular name brand beers are in the 4.6 range. So, what seems like water beer is not as bad as is sounds.

But I agree, we have some odd liquor laws here.
