Sam Adams Limited Edition Utopia Beer
Sam Adams has created the limited edition Samuel Adams Utopias the latest in their Extreme Beers line of sipping beers. Samuel Adams is releasing 8,000 bottles of the kettle-shaped bottle reminiscent of the copper brewing kettles used by brewmasters for hundreds of years. The Utopia is 25% alcohol and therefore the "strongest beer in the world." For the 2005 edition, the brewers aged the beer in single-use bourbon casks to give the new brew a richer flavor than the 2003 release.
The Samuel Adams Utopias 2005 edition costs $100 per bottle which sounds pricey but the brew is meant to be consumed in two-ounce servings like a port or dessert wine.
