Utah's 4% Beer - End of an Era?

On a 58-2 vote (!), the Utah State House voted to eliminate the 4% cap on beer strength.
House Bill 349, sponsored by Rep. Curtis Oda, R-Clearfield, would likely result in bars and restaurants being able to serve greater varieties of beer on tap. Many small breweries don't bother to make separate batches of weaker draft beer for Utah.
I doubt Oregon craft breweries have been sitting up nights trying to figure out how to break into that lucrative Beehive State beer market, but there are probably a few shekels to be made there.
