Beer me with some of that new Sam Adams limited edition beer!

You can say that in New Jersey - apparently - but not in 15 other US states.

Have you heard about this new beer from Sam Adams?

The new beer - scheduled to hit stores and bars on October 11th, is called Utopias.

According to Sam Adams, the beer is a "blend of batches" is aged up to 24 years and is "aged in a variety of barrels including new Scandinavian Aquavit barrels as well as a portion of the final blend aged in Moscat barrels, a first time for the beer."

As for the taste, Sam Adams says Utopias is " a deep rich malty smoothness reminiscent of a Vintage Port, Cognac, or Fine Sherry."

CNN reports that the beer actually contains a whopping "28% alcohol by volume, more than five times the potency of typical US brews."

That face makes it illegal to sell the beer in fifteen states: "Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont or West Virginia."

Don't worry, New Jersey, Utopias is apparently coming your way!

Wait! The price?


Go ahead, guess!

Nope, too low.

According to CNN the going rate for Utopias "$240 for 25.4-ounce bottle."

Let me do some quick calculation here.....

OK.... if you win $10,000 in our Win Cash Contest - you can buy 41 bottles of Utopias! Well, there you go! More details are here.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
