Here are the top three stories in Salt Lake City today:

  1. What’s a beer anyway? That’s the question Utah’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC) is taking on. Well, what’s classified as a beer, anyway. That classification, which will determine what beverages can be sold and where, along with other policies around alcohol regulations such as making more bar licenses available and allowing restaurants and bars more to-go options, are just a few of the changes that can be expected come June 1st. As for the to-go option, restaurants will be able to include beer in to-go orders, sealed and up to two liters. But that’s only available so long as diners have already eaten at the establishment.

  2. Utah’s Major League Soccer team Real Salt Lake has been energizing their fans with win after win, and their most recent victory against Nashville SC has kept the team undefeated this season. RSL homegrown defender Tate Schmitt scored the game-winning goal for the second time, repeating what he did the previous game giving RSL the 2-1 edge at Rio Tinto Stadium over Nashville. (KSL.com)
  3. It’s been an intense few weeks for a Utah couple watching the events in Ukraine unfold knowing that family and loved ones were still there. But luckily, despite the United States not currently granting refugee visas for Ukrainians fleeing their country, a tourism visa from months ago was still valid to reunite with family in Salt Lake City, if only temporarily.
