Samuel Adams Utopias
Only the ninth batch brewed since the first release in 2002, this year’s Utopias, like previous vintages, was brewed in small batches using traditional methods, blended with previous vintages going as far back as 1992, then finished in the Barrel Room at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery.
Samuel Adams Utopias actually began with our first experiments with aging and blending in barrels with the creation of Triple Bock followed by Millenium. It was with these brews that we began testing aging beer in barrels from various origins like bourbon, port, and cognac to discover each of their flavor contributions. Inspired by whiskey makers, we took the barrel aging process for Utopias to another level by utilizing a variety of barrels and blending different vintages to create a truly unique taste experience.
