A bill that would allow stronger beer in Utah stores is pushing forward at the Capitol. Now, one group of brewers is speaking out against it.

In a statement, Nicole Dicou, the executive director of the Utah Brewers guild wrote: “The majority of our members are opposed to an arbitrary and incremental increase to 4.8% ABW as outlined in this bill. They remain in favor of lifting the limit put on alcohol content of beer. However, this legislation would benefit out-of-state breweries at the expense of small, locally owned breweries who employ thousands of Utahns.”

Dicou joined us on Good Morning Utah on Tuesday to weigh in more on what this bill could mean for Utah businesses.
