SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Grocery and convenience stores in Utah that are already limited to selling only low-point beer will face additional restrictions intended to curb excessive in-store advertising and consumer confusion.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports new rules that were buried in a massive liquor overhaul bill that passed last year will restrict stores to only two beer displays.

The stores that sell beer containing 4 percent alcohol by volume must obtain an off-premise state license, requiring stores to pay a $325 fee and to submit a floor plan of where beer will be sold and stored.

The stores must acquire the license from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control before March 2019.

Stores will also be required to post signs at each beer display warning customers that the beverages contain alcohol.
