On the first night of my recent Utah ski trip, my local guide raised a glass to propose this toast: Here’s to a week of great skiing and proving that you really can get a drink in Utah!
It didn’t take much to prove that point. Outings to restaurants with extravagant wine lists, après ski taverns and local distilleries all did their part to debunk the myth of strict drinking laws in Utah.
Because a good stereotype is meant to be squashed, I’m passing along my very scientific research findings to you: a collection of spots to throw one back in the not-so-dry state! The qualifications for my list are simple. It has to come recommended by a local, and it has to serve intoxicating libations.
