Sam Adams releases beer so strong it’s illegal in 15 states
Sam Adams, the makers of Boston Beer Co. releases “Utopias” according to patch.com, and hold on to your cups, it’s 28 percent alcohol. Their special blend “Utopias” is only released every two years, so enthusiasts look forward to this special event. You won’t swallow a six-pack of this special beer at the next soccer game you watch. It really is a beer for connoisseurs.
The special “Utopias” beer will cost as much as a ticket to a $ 240 football game. This batch of “utopias” lasted 30 years. It is aged in wooden bourbon barrels and part of this batch has been aged in French oak barrels from Sauternes. French oak Sauternes casks are supposed to bring out a subtle note of honeyed apricot and caramel. It’s also not something you want to throw in a cooler. It should be served at room temperature to really appreciate the flavor.
Where and when can you get it?
According to patch.com, the beer will be available in wine and specialty beer stores starting Oct. 11 in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and Connecticut. You will have to travel there to get it from New Hampshire or Vermont if you are from our area as it is illegal in those states due to its high alcohol content of 28%. If this beer is aged for 30 years and costs $ 240, I don’t think it’s a drink you’re going to crack. It seems like something is slowly savoring every drop, but beware, this is a high alcohol content for a beer. Bottoms Up beer lovers, enjoy!
