Your daily dose of news and happenings from around the drink-osphere: 

– Apparently the majority of new breweries boast failure rates near zero, which explains why these businesses attract so many entrepreneurs.

– The latest trend for wine collectors? Restaurant-style wine cellars at home, complete with attractive glass cases and attention to lighting and design.

– It’s official: “wine o’clock” and “beer o’clock” are part of the newest additions to the Oxford Dictionary.

Utah happens to have a very complicated past with mini bottles of liquor, but that may soon change.
