Another record year in Utah alcohol sales


With 45 state-controlled liquor stores, locals and tourists are limited as to where they can purchase alcohol.  However, this limitation has not impacted sales which experienced a 5% rise in the last fiscal year according to a report published by the Utah’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.    In fact sales, have increased each year going back to 1996, the first year such data was available.

Please join my team in it’s annual coverage of the Nightclub & Bar show starting on March 26th, where we will explore the huge advances in technology that have greatly increased the control of liquor sales which have added to safety.  The nightclub and bar industry promotes safe drinking and we will explore how companies have jumped on this trend to provide products that increase safety.
