Samuel Adams


An extreme barrel aged beer that pushes the limits of barrel aging.

Pushing the Limits

We Pioneered the Practice of Barrel-Aging

Now a mainstay in American Craft Brewing, Our brewers continually push the brewing and barrel-aging limit with proprietary brewing techniques to create Utopias, a beer unlike any other.

Brewing, Blending, and Aging

A Time-Intensive, Complex Process.

Brewing, blending, and aging Utopias is a multi-step, time-intensive and complex process. This beer starts with a special blend of two-row pale malt combined with Munich and Caramel 60 malts that impart a rich, ruby color. Three varieties of German Noble hops – Spalt Spalter, Hallertau Mittelfrueh, and Tettnang Tettnanger – are added to balance the sweetness of the malt.

Aged up to 30 Years

A Blend of Batches

Our most recent release is a blend of batches, some having been aged up to 30 years in a variety of barrels. The recipe includes Utopias aged in a variety of barrels including new Scandinavian Aquavit barrels as well as a portion of the final blend aged in Moscat barrels, a first time for the beer.

Ninja Yeast
