Ah, the good old 3.2 laws. Upholding a monopoly on shiatty beer for decades

So, if I'm in Utah I have to pour out two for my homies?

I'm guessing there a lot of closet sterno and Windex drinkers in Utah.

Better than demonic covfefe coffee.

And dude, that assist and slam dunk in the McConnell protest thread was f'ing outstanding.

Jesus, that's not even worth trying to get drunk off of.
 
2017-06-22 08:40:42 PM  
Of course they are. You can get over the .05 line way faster with 5.0+ ABV beers

If you're in Utah, you should immediately drop whatever you're doing and leave Utah.

There's a lot of super-shiatty states in this country but... I mean... if you find yourself in Alabama or Mississippi or West Virginia, at least you can still get drunk.

If you find yourself in Utah, you're just in Utah.

I actually did talk to an older woman about this the other day, she was talking about when she was young they just smuggled in some whiskey to add to their beer in the bar.

3.2?? Damn.. that should be considered alcohol free.

Tis illegal to bring booze over the state line, sorry to say.

But you can buy full strength at the compa, excuse me,  state store.  Everytime I'm there they look at my CO ID and ask what the hell I'm doing in Utah. I never have a good answer.

I ended up with a twelve pack of "hard" lemonade years and years ago in Oklahoma visiting my uncle and his family. I drank 8 or 9 of them during the course of an afternoon /evening BBQ, trying to figure out exactly where the hell my buzz was. Looked at the box later to see they were 2.3's. That's when my uncle informed me I needed to hit an actual liquor store on the reservation. I drank whisky after that.

Athletes prefer 3.2 beer.  The buzz kicks in after three quarts, giving your bladder quite the workout.

You would think a state that you can have multiple wives, drinking would be encouraged.

I would think in a state that you can have multiple wives, all other forms of torture, including sobriety, would be encouraged.

It's the biggest market for home brew supplies per capita, and has been since before utah made it legal to brew beer and ferment wine (which only happened in the last 10 years, IIRC).

Utah measures in ABW, not ABV. (much like the beer sold in CO grocery stores)

Guinness is only 3.4 ABW. Are the Irish known as alcohol free these days?
 
2017-06-22 09:52:35 PM  
Do people still fall for this myth that 3.2 beer is half as strong or less than standard beer even though its 2017 and the internet exists?

3.2 ABW is 4.0 ABV which is 4/5ths as strong as normal domestic beers...not half.    Most light beers are between 2.5 and 4.2% ABV yet people manage to get farked up on them with regularity.

Colorado has legalized the marijuanas...

..Still has 3.2 beer laws.

csb:

Went to a family reunion in Utah a few years back and tried 3.2 Steel Reserve, the existence of which boggles my mind to this day.

Tastes just as awful, left the same shiatty hangover, and my body was filtering out the alcohol before I could even get a buzz.

Utah beer is good. By saying that I mean that the beer that is made in Utah is good, not the beer that is currently sold at grocery stores in Utah.

Many small breweries in Utah sell through local restaurants and Utah state liquor stores because their product is over the 3.2 alcohol limit. Not much is exported out of state. When the Utah legislature allows grocery stores to sell undiluted Utah beer it will be a tax revenue bonanza. In other words, it will happen.

My taste (I have been drinking Ken Grossman's product for decades) says try the Moab Brewery offerings.

I bring my own beer, whisky and weed when i go to Zion

Brought back many a case of 'regular' beer from neighboring Idaho upon returning back to school (U grad many years back)

farking shiatty beer helped me learn about the distilled spirits quite early on.
 
2017-06-22 11:23:41 PM  
For once we agree on something.  3.2 "beer" is an abomination in the sight of the lord.

Go fark yourself, Mormons.

Keep your damn theocracy out of our lives.

let the thread happen, there's typically a guy claiming "you can't get drunk on 3.2, and I can get drunk on Bud Light!" - not realizing the absurdity of he claim.

This is true, but some parts of the world neither of them were considered alcoholic beverages until fairly recently.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-14232970   Until [2012] anything containing less than 10% alcohol in Russia [had] been considered a foodstuff.

Beer.  It's not just for breakfast anymore!

If Utah falls, major brewers will stop making their swill in 3.2, and all the other states with archaic laws will be forced to revisit them.  Let it happen.

Founders anything stout is awesome.  Their "Dirty Bastard" scotch style ale is pretty decent too.

Russia:  We just keep getting shiattier!

Their old law sounds like a good one.  We should do that.
