Isn't it a little early to be drinking?

I'm sitting in SLC as we speak. I sit down for an eggs benny and a bloody and guess what? No booze in the airport until 8am (11am for the rest of the state). Seriously Fark this place. I've been working in the northern suburbs of Salt Lake for a few months. The flight home for the weekend is the only highlight of being here. Bars sucks, 3.2% beer on draft only! 3 beers in an hour in restaurants and only 1 per hour after that. Newer restaurants suck since sitting in the bar is boring as hell. Bartenders make drinks/pour behind the Zion's curtain. Fark this ghey ass place.

/Park City is ok though

Northern suburbs like North Salt Lake or like Centerville/Layton? If you're actually in North Salt Lake City, get down to The Beerhive or The Bayou. You'll find plenty of good beers available (in bottle) that you can't get anywhere else in the state.


Yup, Layton. I'll head down and check out your suggestions. I usually work M-Th but farking Delta cancelled the 4:50pm to PDX during the week. So I either have to take the 10pm (which is awful & I get home at midnight) or I chose the Friday 8:35am. Never been leaving SLC so early and had no idea about the 8am restriction. I always get a drink on the flight home, it like tradition. /end rant

/I'll check those bars out next week, thx!

See how those two are  different words, Mormons? Yeah...they're supposed to stay that way.

My current client is in Roy, and I work from home (WA State) half the time and on site half the time.  My hotel is in Layton.  It's not as easy as back home to stock up but they do have state liquor stores, and last Sunday I needed beer to go with the wings for the NFC game (go Hawks) and walked down the street to a brewpub to get a growler filled.  There are barriers, true, but if you really gotta enjoy (and who doesn't now and then?) it's not impossible.


Did you get it filled at Roosters? I stay at the Hilton Garden Inn next door when I'm in Layton every other week. It's pretty sad when the hotel bar is one of the more happening spots in town, Fahrenheit is ok but wow Layton is boring.

Yep.  Roosters is a frequent stop when I'm in town, mostly because I can get growler service even on a Sunday.  I stay at one of the Marriott places down the road.  You're right about it being a pretty quiet place.  On weekends I'll go hike around Antelope or drive up to Ogden just to get out of town.  I keep meaning to go do the High West tour but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Right on- next time we're both in town we should have an informal Fark party. My expense account is pretty generous on this project so the 3.2% beer is on me haha! Cheers.

It's almost as if Mormons don't trust their flock to not drink. If your little cult is so great, why don't you trust the adherents to follow the tenets?

There are plenty of Farkers in Utah, not just the baby-making kind.   On a side note, being that outside of liquor stores and bars, the beer is 3.2%...


How is Utah beer like having sex in a canoe?

monoski: BunkyBrewman: Utah.

#1 in porn subscriptions
#1 in prescription drug abuse
#1 in hypocrisy

Congratulations.

Also #1 in child sex abuse


I have heard that Utah tops the nation in porn subscriptions. I have also heard that Utah's rate of antidepressant medication use is high. But I don't think you can call that "#1 in prescription drug abuse." I have met my share of hypocritical and holier-than-thou Mormons, most of whom come from the Mountain West area of Utah and Idaho that we call the "Zion Curtain." I would certainly like to see the citation for "#1 in child sex abuse."

When in Ogden, go to the slackwater pizzeria....it's on Washington blvd, right on the bank of the river. They have a pretty sizable selection of full strength beer, and the atmosphere is nice.

Down town salt lake is almost normal, and has some good spots for drinks/food.
Some notables:
The green pig, poplar street grill, the piano bar, the tavernacle, the garage on beck are all good bar atmosphere type places which have good beer selections and decent drinks....beware, they can sometimes be a bit hipster, but as long as one doesn't brush you with one of their hideously waxed mustaches, you'll be fine.

Awww, how cute, Utah. Yes, if you're not LDS, you get treated like shiat by the uber fundies.

But overall, when I visited Salt Lake City, guess what. There were PLENTY of bars where shame faced Mormons were boozing it up in the middle of the day.

Even my ultra-conservative aunt was busy drinking coffee and tea, and was extremely pissed when I pointed it out (same person who laid into me and others for having a beer at home). The hypocracy is pretty overwhelming.

And the porn. Holy shiat, while there are not the normal adult bookstores, there ARE the back room ones, and there is plenty of hardcore shiat. Repressed religious girls are a lot of fun.

I also know 2 very active men who are dedicated missionaries in the LDS Church who also both love teh cawk like no tomorrow, but who also actively rage on gay rights. It's a very backward farked up place.

After moving here from TX, I've found that SLC is actually fairly normal.  Head south to Utah county (referred to as 'the bubble' from the dominance of LDS, BYU etc,) and it's much more annoying - I'm over 50 and they card me there.  The state-run liquor stores are such a cash cow that they're unlikely to loosen the laws.  Best solution is a long weekend in Las Vegas - a 6-hour drive - and load up the SUV there.

Don't care much for beer and mostly drink brown ales when I do but,

Is the difference between 3.2 and 3.6 really that big a whoo?

Especially in a Coors or Mich lite that's gotta be a mostly physiological thing.

zepillin: Is the difference between 3.2 and 3.6 really that big a whoo?


We used to call 3.2 "headache beer". They bubble ether through it to get the right alcohol content.
