Mandatory ID Policy To Be Enforced At All State Liquor Stores
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Make sure you have your wallet and I.D. with you for your next visit to any state liquor store, as the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control will begin enforcing a new I.D. policy next week.
Beginning Monday, anyone purchasing beer, wine or liquor will have to present a valid I.D. at any store across Utah.
Four documents that serve as a valid I.D. under state law include:
- A state-issued identification card
- A valid state-issued drivers license
- A military identification card
- A valid passport
Those documents must include a photograph and date of birth.
DABC officials said the policy change is to prevent the underage from buying alcohol and to create a consistent policy on who is asked to show their I.D.
The policy was tested at four DABC stores. Customers gave feedback during that test.
“The I.D. will be verified by the clerk with a scan of the barcode on the backside of the card or a visual inspection of date of birth and photo,” officials said. “The date of birth may be manually entered into the cash register to verify age.”
DABC officials assured no personal information, such as names or addresses, will be captured or stored.
