But Utah's anti-alcohol lawmakers and the state's Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control apparently don't think the 21-and-older Brewvies fans are adults at all. The DABC has hit Brewvies with a ridiculous $1,627 fine for violating Utah's liquor laws prohibiting nudity and sex acts from happening in the same venue as where alcohol is served. The law was designed for strip clubs, but the DABC saw fit to set up a sting, sending Utah Highway Patrol officers to watch The Hangover II, and decided the nudity and "sex" in the slapstick R-rated comedy were a violation.
This fine is a farce nearly on par with the shenanigans of the movie's characters, not to mention a complete waste of time for the Utah Highway Patrol and slap at a locally owned and operated small business in Utah. That's why City Weekly wants to help Brewvies pay its fine, and we're hoping fans of the place, or simply those who want Utah to start treating adults as adults, will pitch in. Will join us?
