News: Tanner Lenart interprets Utah’s peculiar liquor laws so the rest of us don’t have to
// May 2, 2018
Christensen & Jensen Attorney Tanner Lenart was featured in Salt Lake City Weekly today to get her take on Utah liquor laws. Tanner helps restaurateurs, bartenders and patrons understand the laws passed during Utah's short annual legislative session this year.
From the article:
"Tanner just really gets it," Sean Neves, co-owner of the Central 9th bar Water Witch, says. "She's just a really sharp gal. And is just passionate about food and beverage." Neves serves with Lenart on SLARA's board, and he's the president of the Utah chapter of the U.S. Bartenders' Guild, of which Lenart is also a member.
Lenart estimates she's helped about a dozen establishments get up and running in the past year, whether through transferring an existing liquor license or getting a new one. Then there are the follow-up questions about what is or isn't allowed under the existing laws. "I probably get a question or two a week," Lenart says.
