4 + Brewing Company has brewed up a Belgian Pale Ale that is remarkably light and low in alcohol, after all it’s brewed in Utah and it’s the law! What does the 4 + stand for? Watch and find out.
I’m surprised this version of Monkshine is still on the market. Four+ amped up the ABV on this beer to 6.8% last October. And just to clarify, Utah considers anything over 4.0% abv to be “liquor”. So any beer that’s made above that is taxed as liquor and must be bottled. There is no 4.0% cap on the alcohol in beer, it just ceases to be beer in the eyes of the state. Confusing? I know….

Thanks Mikey for the clarification. Not so confusing … arbitrary but understandable.
These came from my cellar as opposed to off the shelf so that may explain the ABV issue.
