On July 1, 2018, brunch will get a boost in Utah.
That's when diners will be able to order a Bloody Mary, mimosa or other alcoholic drinks beginning at 10:30 a.m. on weekends, state and federal holidays and at private events under a bill passed last week by the Utah Legislature.
Currently, liquor cannot be served until 11:30 a.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
The earlier alcohol service hours were adopted last week as part of HB442, a massive liquor reform bill that, among other changes, modified the barrier requirements — aka "Zion Curtains" — in Utah restaurants. Gov. Gary Herbert is expected to sign the bill into law.
