I hate when that happens - just sitting there, minding your business, and six beers accost you and get in your belly.Tried the Sam Adams new Hopscape wheat ale last night.... If you like "hoppy" beers, this is a good one. I accidentally drank the whole sixer... burrrrp
New $200 Samuel Adams Beer Is Illegal in 12 States
Samuel Adams just released a new limited-edition beer (at $199 per bottle) with an alcohol content so high, it is illegal to sell in 12 states.
The Boston brewery just announced the beer called Utopias would be released to stores in early November.
Only 13,000 bottles of Utopias, a beer with an alcohol content of 28 percent, more than 10 percent above the legal limit of some states, will be distributed in the entire country -- minus the dozen states where it's illegal.
You won't be able to find it in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont or Washington, where state liquor laws bar it from being available for sale.
Budweiser has gone to the history books for its latest lager.
A new beer the massive brewer is rolling out this month, Freedom Reserve Red Lager, is inspired by a hand-written recipe found in George Washington's military journal kept during the French and Indian War in 1757.
Meant to celebrate U.S. veterans and American history, the red lager is made by Budweiser brewers who are also "proud veterans," the company says. Proceeds benefit Folds of Honor, a non-profit group that provides educational scholarships to military families.
