TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Services (ABS) is proposing the sale of 50ml size “mini-bottles” in Utah’s state-run liquor stores. A hearing on the proposal will be held Tuesday, Sep. 27, and the public is invited to participate.
The 50ml bottles or “mini-bottles” sales are included in the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Services’ administrative rule changes. According to a press release, the review is a regular governmental process, occurring at least annually, to establish rules for administering various policies.
In July, Gov. Spencer Cox appointed Juliette Tennert as chair of the ABS, the first woman to ever hold the position. Tennert helped workshop the idea of reintroducing the mini-bottles into stores after more than two decades without them.
The hearing will be held at 8:30 a.m., at the Taylorsville State Office Building
The DABS’ proposed rule changes can be found on the Utah Office of Administrative Rules website. The hearing’s official announcement and agenda are available on the state public notice website.
