Utah tosses thousands of gallons of beer after law change

Brew industry expected to grow in Pocatello

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) - Utah liquor authorities have thrown away thousands of gallons of drinkable beer after state law changed to allow higher-alcohol brews.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control disposed of beer worth almost $18,000 on Friday.

Authorities say they were legally required to dump the beer from state-owned liquor stores because a new law allowed those beers to be sold in private stores instead.
