An extreme barrel aged beer that pushes the limits 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 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 colour. Three varieties of German Noble hops – Spalt Spalter, Hallertau Mittelfrueh, and Tettnang Tettnanger – are added to balance the sweetness of the malt. Our most recent release is a blend of batches, some having been aged up to 24 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. The result is a deep rich malty smoothness reminiscent of a vintage port, cognac, or fine sherry.
