PROVO, Utah (The Daily Herald) — Provo city officials have approved amending the land use code allowing ancillary breweries in restaurants in two downtown zones and in regional shopping center areas. The Daily Herald reported Tuesday that Provo City Council voted 4-3 on the amendment after hearing public comments. Supporters say it allows brew pubs to have economic value, bring more diversity and provide a welcoming atmosphere for visitors. Opponents have mentioned the health and safety of residents. They say the concern is brewpubs could potentially increase reports of drunken driving and DUI-related citations and crashes.
