Well, seems even in Zion people like to let loose and enjoy their libation. This should not be a surprise considering all the worry over our nearly lost Oktoberfest due to some uppity political grandstanding (a cause for true social panic).
Whether at home or at one of a handful of Utah's bars we all (I mean those of us who drink) have our favorite cocktail, shot, draught or designated driver beverage, but when it comes to the number's at Utah's State Liquor Stores a very specific story is told about the liquor we buy.
It turns out Utah likes it cheap and sugary, but has a better taste in beer than the X96 staff expected. Fox 13 decided it would be a good idea to pull the number on what you buy at the liquor store. If the X96 staff were gambling folks we would have lost - turns out we just had too many Hop's Rising due to the proximity of our new studio to Squatter's.
Our guesses for Utah's favorite bottles of hooch would have been:
1. Everclear (or Fireball)
2. Five Wives' Vodka (or Fireball)
3. Jameson (or Fireball)
4. Fernet Branca (or Fireball)
5. Pimm's No. 5 (or 2 bottles of Fireball)
And for beer:
1. St. Ides
2. Dead Guy
3. "What's on sale?"
4. St. Ides
5. "Anything larger than 12oz."
We are glad we didn't have a pony in this race...since pony kegs are illegal here.
