Hit up Twin Peaks Mockingbird Station to try Samuel Adams UTOPIAS!! 💙🍻 .
At 28% ABV, the brew is reminiscent of a rich vintage Port, old Cognac, or fine Sherry with notes of dark fruit, subtle sweetness, and a deep rich malty smoothness. With only 68 wooden casks of Utopias created in 2017, just 13,000 bottles will hit shelves nationwide. .

Bidding farewell to Miami with this slightly surreal image of Buckminster Fuller’s dome framed by tinsel-wrapped palm trees ringing in the holiday season in the Florida sunshine. What would Bucky Fuller make of all this? I suspect he would delight at how the architects and designers of the area have created something almost resembling an authentic urban fabric. The piazza around the dome feels genuinely social and inviting, despite being a kind of open-air first class lounge that entices with a bevy of fancy shops. Still, it amounts to a nice stab at organic sociability using the tools of urban design. What may have made Bucky Fuller less enthusiastic is the seeming absence from this place of a progressive spirit. It is as if luxury and indulgence were the final aim, and not just a welcome side effect of a thriving, comfortable society. In any event, nice to be inspired by the utopias of yesteryear. As we look out into a decidedly murky period ahead of us, let’s draw some solace from an earlier generation of dreamers and thinkers who emerged from the cataclysm of the mid-twentieth century to offer visions of a better tomorrow. And with that, wheels up from Miami... #miami#artbasel#artbasel2017#buckminsterfuller#architecture#design#utopias#cities#community#place#urbanplanning#art#xmas#christmas#palmtrees#silver
I can’t believe I’m actually drinking this right now. #samadams#utopias @samueladamsbeer
The thing about Samuel Adams’ Utopias — the extreme barrel-aged beer that drinks more like a Port or sherry than a can of Boston Lager — is that although they constantly tweaked the recipe, the beer itself never seemed to change that much in the many times we’ve reviewed it. With this year’s 10th release, Utopias was aged in a variety of barrels including new Scandinavian Aquavit barrels as well as a portion of the final blend aged in Muscat barrels, a first for the beer. What did these unique barrels do to the final product? Check the link in our profile for the review!
Huge thanks to my department for the best going away gift ever. You guys rock! I have been wanting to try this for a long time, but never would have bought it myself ($200 for a bottle of beer is a little steep). @ssoto89_ @cjbots74
