Provo, Utah, expands Sunday beer sales

The Provo City Council voted earlier this month to lift a ban on the Sunday beer sales in grocery and convenience store.

Granted, Utah has a potpourri of bizarre liquor laws, but it’s quietly developing a reputation for its craft beer scene, with nearly 20 small breweries and brewpubs in operation, according to the Utah Beer blog.

Most of those are located in Salt Lake City, about 43 miles north of Provo. Utah craft brewers brought home seven medals from the 2011 Great American Beer Festival competition, including three golds.

The repealing of such so-called “blue laws” is good news for beer road trippers because these myriad Prohibition-era ordinances vary from state to state, county to county, and municipality to municipality, which means a pit stop at a beer store to pick up some local brews could come up dry if you stop in the wrong place on a Sunday: the fewer, the better.  Also, beer drinkers often can drive just a few miles to a store in another municipality that allows Sunday liquor sales, taking money out of the community in which they live.
