New Sam Adams Beer Too Strong To Be Sold In 12 States

Only 13,000 bottles will be distributed nationwide, with a reported price tag of $199 each.

Every two years, the brewers at Samuel Adams like to create an event-and there's no easier way to stir the passions of beer lovers than the release of Utopias. State liquor laws in those states prohibit beers with alcohol content that high from being sold there. About 13,000 bottles will be distributed throughout the USA this year, excluding some states.

Utopias, which the brewer describes on their site as an "extreme barrel-aged beer", is 28 percent alcohol by volume-which is above the legal limit in several states, including New Hampshire and Vermont.

The Boston brewery just released a new limited-edition beer called Utopias to be released to stores, including in the Chicago area, in early November. "Utopias is brewed like any other Sam Adams beer, using four main ingredients and the traditional brewing process, but it's the yeast strains we use, as well as our barrel-aging and blending process that makes Utopias truly one-of-a-kind".

"Utopias challenges conventional thinking about beer but it is definitely a beer - that's what's so exciting!"

Editor's note: This story initially incorrectly identified OH as a state that prohibited the sale of Utopias.
