Consumers are tired of paying a premium in Utah for beer that has gone bad!

The Utah legislature mandated that the UDABC be operated as a public business using sound management principles and practices. What other business could sell a limited and spoiled product at a price that exceeds competitors or other markets? None!

The UDABC acknowledges the “perishable nature and susceptibility to temperature changes”, as found in their (R81-2-2, Liquor Returns, Refunds and Exchanges) rules and policies, and will not allow these items to be returned (with few exceptions). However, they will sell Utahans “heavy beer” that has been exposed to high temperatures for an extended period of time.

Many people in Utah drink beer. The net profit of the UDABC in amount of $53,181,640 in ’07 can attest to this. Now let’s give these people an opportunity to get good beer from the channels that have been given to them, and stop allowing the UDABC to promote illegal transportation and consumption of out of state beer.

We, the undersigned, call on the UDABC to require the use of refrigeration units in State liquor stores.

Said refrigeration units should be used in a manner commensurate of consumer needs: Helping to preserve the freshness of “heavy” beers.
