Some hard seltzers will start disappearing from Utah store shelves next week | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors

When newly passed liquor laws go into effect next week, some popular hard seltzer flavors may disappear from Utah's grocery and convenience store shelves. The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission was briefed on upcoming plans for hard seltzers at its monthly meeting. The agency will not require product to immediately be pulled from store shelves and sent to state-run liquor stores. "There are going to be some stores that are selling products that aren't legal after June 1 based on this new definition of beer. So rather than just yank it off the shelves, we wanted to give that buffer zone so that they can sell through their products," said agency spokesperson Michelle Schmitt.
