Beer delivered to your home? Suds could be easy to order if this Utah bill gets passed.
Utah residents who use grocery stores’ home delivery system could include beer in their orders.
If HB 100 survives the 2023 legislature and becomes law, Utah residents who use grocery store home delivery system will be able to include beer in their orders.
Rep. Joel Briscoe, D-Salt Lake City, told St. George News that the Beer Ordering and Delivery Amendment Act, officially referred to as HB 100 in the 2023 Utah Legislature, is pretty simply summed up: “The The goal of the bill is to allow people who order groceries in-store to have beer delivered.”
Briscoe, who is sponsoring the bill, said during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown he was contacted by a man in his 80s who didn’t want to leave home to shop.
“He said, ‘I love going online and ordering groceries and having someone bring them home,'” Brisco said. “‘Why can’t I get my beer delivered? I ask my neighbors. i ask friends I’m tired of leaning on my neighbors and friends. I’m 80. I’m frail. I can order my eggs and my bread and my orange juice, why can’t I get my Coors?’”
