Budweiser celebrates arrival of 5% ABV beer to the state on November 1

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – 3.2 beer in Utah is dead, and Utahns gathered on a frigid October night to say their final goodbyes.

To celebrate the arrival of 5% ABV (alcohol by volume) beer to the Beehive State, Budweiser held a “spooky, ghoulish, over-the-top” funeral for the weaker 3.2 beer.

“After 86 long years, October 31 marks the death of Utah’s 3.2% beer laws and now Utahns can finally drink Budweiser with the same recipe as the rest of the U.S.,” said the brand in a statement Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the Budweiser Clydesdales were joined by a “ghoulish group of pallbearers” for a funeral procession for Utah’s last remaining 3.2 beer.

The Clydesdales left Vivint Smart Home Arena and visited local bars at the corner of 200 S and State Street. 

“Rest in peace 3.2 beer. Bud HEAVY IS HERE!”
