Samuel Adams' Utopias ... good to the last drop!

Though neither Gord nor I were chosen in the lottery to be able to buy one of the 70 bottles of Samuel Adams' Utopias ($115 each and 27% alcohol) a couple weeks ago, we still wanted to have a taste to see what we were missing.

Gord discovered that the beerbistro (King W/Yonge) had a bottle ... so we headed there this afternoon.

We sat at the bar. For a 1.5 ounce serving, it was $20. Here are Gord and I just before we tried it.

It was tasty. I do enjoy beer and, if I didn't know what it was, I never would have guessed that's what it was. It was very very sweet and seemed more like cognac.

They let us get up close and personal with the bottle ... it's very cool.

Gord blogs about beer and this is his 100th review ... he gives a more technical description of Utopias here.

It is served in its own signature glass.

I enjoyed it. No doubt we'll be back again for another taste in the future.
