You're Going to be Paying More for Your Beer
This means all breweries that make higher alcohol beer will likely be raising their prices effective July 1, 2012. According to the DABC, a “handling fee” is a nominal fee charged on everything it processes.
The increase will likely affect the prices at the individual brewery's cold cases, the DABC state liquor stores and the price that licensees pay for the beer.
Just so you know, if you notice a price increase it's on the state level and not on the part of the breweries.
On a lighter note, Utah's "liquor gestapo" unofficially headed by General...er...Senator John Valentine of Orem, is bending to pressure from businesses to free up more liquor licenses for restaurants. More on this after it officially passes.
