The new year is bringing news of a new version of one of The Boston Beer Co.’s most anticipated beers.

The beer is Samuel Adams Utopias Limited 2017 Edition, a 28 percent ABV ale brewed with maple syrup before being brewed in aquavit, bourbon, muscat, ruby port and white carcavelos barrels. While the ale was first released by the Boston-based brewery in 2002, this will be only the eleventh time the limited release has been sold.


According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Samuel Adams Utopias Limited 2017 Edition will be packaged in 24-ounce decanters made by Ceramarte in Brazil. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
