The only downside to Utah climbing is Utah beer. State law stipulates that beer sold be 3.2 % alcohol by volume. The exception to this rule is beer purchased at the Utah State Liquor Store which, though room temperature, is REAL BEER though an alternative to that would be to buy from the local brewery located South of Moab Utah State Liquor Store- Relatively good selection of beers and micro brews, wine, and liquor.
Located at 55 West 200 South
