One of The Boston Beer Co.’s most unique creations is returning after a year-long hiatus.
According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), that beer is Samuel Adams Utopias Limited 2019 Edition, a 28 percent ABV ale brewed with maple syrup before being brewed in aquavit, bourbon, carcavelos, cognac, madeira and ruby port barrels before being packaged in 24-ounce decanters made by Ceramarte in Brazil.
While the ale was first released by the Boston-based brewery in 2002, this will be only the twelfth time the limited release has been sold. The 2017 incarnation of the limited release ale featured the same ABV, but it was aged in aquavit, bourbon, muscat, ruby port and white carcavelos barrels.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
