Brewpubs in Utah

The New York Times has an interesting story up on brewpubs in Utah. Despite strict alcohol laws, a beer scene is now flourishing, having first taken root in trendy ski areas. Judging from the names, the brewers seem to relish their iconoclasm:
The server at the table where a friend and I were sitting brought a flight of Wasatch creations, including Polygamy Porter, which has sultry, malted, espresso notes, and a smooth and slightly spicy Evolution Amber Ale.
Sounds like I'd have better luck finding good beer in Utah than I do here in Jakarta.

I'm not sure if you just pasted the info over from the times article, but there is no 3.2% cap on beer in utah. There is no limit on the amount of alcohol beer can have. Also, There is no such thing as 3.2% abv beer being made in Utah. 4.0% abv is as weak as it gets. You may be confusing 3.2% ABW with 4.0% abv. an entirely different way of measuring.

Thanks, Mikey, I was reading too fast. According to the article it's a 3.2% cap for beers *served on tap* - is this accurate?

4.0% abv on tap. Cheers.
