Utopia
#1
Anyone ever hear of Sam Adams Utopia, or better yet, try it?
[Image: dish-BEER.jpg]

I saw it on the history channel. Basically it's some sort of beer made with yeast that doesn't die off at around 8% alcohol. Therefore they can reach scotch strength without distillation. Further it is aged in wooden barrels.

Basically I'm thinking I have got to get me a bottle of this stuff.

Wow, I didn't think a yeast could live at those alcohol concentrations.  Are you sure it's not heat or ice-distilled?  It sounds interesting.  I'd like to try it as well.

That sounds like a cool libation. Give us a report Skipper if you do get some. I could easily be tempted.

OK, I found a link on it.  It's 24% alcohol, which is unreal for a yeast to survive at.  A 24 ounce bottle will be $100, so I'll probably not be getting this one.  I'm looking forward to Skip's report.

Thanks for looking up that link. I want some! They didn't mention an online vendor. Wow! That's crazy though.

Wine yeast will live up arond that so i'm sure there is a hybrid beer/wine yeast that sombody came up with. I tried ti 2 years ago, didn't care for it.

I can just see Skip's funeral now.  There he will be, with all of his Stogiechat buddies in attendance, viewing him lying in state:

Bartok (whispers): Beerlord!

Beerlord (whispers): What?

Bartok: Did you look inside the casket?

Beerlord: No, of course not.  I came all the way here to view Skip one last time, and I didn't look inside the casket.  Of course I looked, you idiot!

Bartok:  Not at Skip!  I mean, did you see the bottle of Sam Adams Utopia in there?  Do you suppose he finished it or not?

Beerlord:  Christ!  Good eye, Bartok.  I missed that.  I don't think he ever put that review up on Stogiechat.

Bartok:  I don't know. I don't think I saw it either.

Dr. Stogie Fresh (whispers):  What are you two talking about?

Beerlord: In the casket, in Skipper's right hand.  Did you notice he's got the bottle of Sam Adams Utopia with him?

Dr Stogie Fresh: Oh man, you're right!  Do you think he finished it?

Bartok: I was just saying the same thing.

Dr Stogie Fresh: Well, how do you think we can find out?  Who put him in there?

Beerlord: Do you think he died holding it?

Bartok:  I don't know.  Man, there's got to be some way we can find out.

Dr Stogie Fresh:  What time are they going to bury him tomorrow?

Bartok:  I think it's at 11am.  Beerlord, what time are they going to drop the box tomorrow?

Beerlord:  11 tomorrow.  Why?

Dr Stogie Fresh: That gives us a little over 15 hours to find out what's in the bottle.

Later that night in the funeral parlor ...

To Be Continued ...
