Utopias

Got $150 burning a hole in your pocket? Want to spend that on a rare beer? Today's your day because Sam Adams Utopias is out. It's very rare but should be available at all the usual suspect places.

I've had a snifter of Utopias before and I did enjoy it. I'd never actually buy any. It tastes enough like Cognac that I'd rather spend the money on an actual bottle of good cognac. But, your mileage may vary. It does come in a cool little bottle and glass and might be worth it once, but I think you buy a lot of really good beer for that kind of coin. I would suggest getting a couple of bottles of Avery The Beast Grand Cru, it tastes about the same.

  1. Beast does not taste like Utopias. Cognac does not taste like Utopias. Nothing taste like Utopias but Utopias. Not saying it's better or worse, but definitely has it's own flavors.

  3. Comes with a code to be redeemed online for a glass. At least the 2009 did.

  4. Drink it out of a red plastic SOLO cup in your driveway wearing some basketball shorts, white tank top, and flip-flops while blasting Ice Cube from the home stereo. Bull can lift weights in the garage but only chest and bicep exercises.
