Talked to Craigh Wathen, proprietor of City Beer. He said response to Utopias shocked him. He got 15 bottles, sold 10 within hours at $167.50 per 24 oz. bottle. He’s keeping five back, still is thinking about pouring them at some point after Thanksgiving. Doesn’t know when.

About Morton’s, I finally got through to someone at the Morton’s in San Francisco. This will take your breath away: $27 for a two ounce pour. Gasp!. “Don’t blame me,” the person I spoke to at Morton’s said. “It was a corporate decision” All the Morton’s steakhouses in the U.S. are pouring Utopias. Whew.
