Utopia- the Samuel Adams beer, which is so strong it has been banned across several states in America has returned once more- for its 10th year anniversary.
The beer is well known amongst beer lovers and has a distinct taste and a formidable alcoholic content- mostly because of a certain strain of yeast known as “ninja yeast”. It is a blend of the “world’s finest ingredients,” according to the press release, including multiple varieties of hops and malts.
The creators in Samuel Adams describe it as “the craft beer community’s most renowned and sought-after extreme barrel-aged beer”.
“At 28% ABV (alcohol by volume), this brew is reminiscent of a rich vintage Port, old cognac, or fine Sherry with notes of dark fruit, subtle sweetness, and a deep rich malty smoothness.”
But great taste does not come cheap and there should be no surprise that the limited bottle, of which only 13,000 bottles of Utopias are brewed, every two years, costs the whooping 200 (£149).
However, it will last you a while as the alcohol content is so high that it is recommended that the beer is served just an ounce a time.
It makes for the perfect Christmas gift for a beer lover- unless you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, or West Virginia, where the sale of the outrageously alcoholic beverage is banned.
