I made Sam Adams stunning 25.6 percent Utopias my Beer of the Week in my column on Wednesday, which I’ve posted below this post. Utopias also has a stunning “suggested retail price of $120-$140 for a 24 oz. bottle. Hey it’s in a copper colored aluminum box.
I’ve been deluged for requests about places to try it. One is any Morton’s Steakhouse. A pour, which I’m guessing will be 4 oz. is $8.95, or so they said. The beer’s not there yet, at least not in San Francisco or San Jose.
Here’s another: The City Beer Store, 1168 Folsom St. (Yes down the street from the leather bars, but in an entirely different neighborhood.) They’re getting the beer, haven’t figured out a retail price, but they’re going to crack a few bottles and sell it by the glass.
No they haven’t figured out how much, or when, but most likely late next week after Thanksgiving. Stay tuned.
