The Utah Office Of Secular Rights Infringement Presents...

That right there is a liquor stamp. It means that this liquor was made in Utah. It's as unlawful to remove as those tags on mattresses, and you can't bring alcohol into Utah what don't have a stamp on it (giving Utah the mysterious and oppressive designation of 'control state'). The stamp signifies that this alcohol has an alcohol content of about 3.2% by weight. I don't know much about percentages, but I read that beer in Louisiana hovers around six percent. So I've managed to land myself in the one state that is more iron-fisted about alcohol than the one with parishes instead of counties.
Control state... wasn't that where they all lived in 1984?

Tanqueray @ 3.2%? There's an achievement...

In Utah the beer is 3.2, but the other hooch is the same strength as everywhere else. That little sticker just means the state has collected its special morality tax. It's all about the money--but in the name of piety.
