SAMUEL ADAMS® EXTREME BEER EXPERIENCE 2009 UTOPIAS®

TO BE SHOWCASED AT TASTE OF ELEGANCE ON
JUNE 9, 2010

The world's second most expensive beer won a Gold medal at the 2010 Denver International Beer Competition!

Denver,CO, MAY 28, 2010, Wine Country Network, Inc, producers of the Taste of Elegance Chefs Food and Beer Competition have announced that representatives of the Boston Beer Company, parent of SAMUEL ADAMS® have confirmed that they will provide 24 bottles of their 2009 UTOPIAS® for showcasing with a chef pairing at the Taste of Elegance on June 9, 2010.

The 2009 batch of Utopias anchors the outermost boundary of beer and champions the respect this noble beverage deserves. Utopias is the ideal for connoisseurs of fine beverages: beer, wine and spirits enthusiasts alike.

The 2009 Samuel Adams Utopias is a strong, rich, dark beer that, unlike most beers, is uncarbonated and is served room temperature in a snifter glass. The recommended pour is two-ounces meant to be savored like vintage port or a fine cognac. Samuel Adams Utopias is
brewed in small batches, blended, and aged in the Barrel Room at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery. Since its first release in 2002, Utopias has held the coveted title of 'world's strongest beer' in the Guinness Book of World Records with 25 percent alcohol by volume. Maintaining the record set by the 2007 batch for commercially brewed beers, the 2009 batch of Samuel Adams Utopias weighs in at 27 percent alcohol by volume. The average beer is about 5%.

"When beer drinkers first tasted Samuel Adams Boston Lager® twenty-five years ago, it redefined their notion of what an American beer could be--full-flavored, brewed in small batches and delivered fresh right here in America," said founder and brewer, Jim Koch. "As brewers, we continue to challenge ourselves to experiment and explore new flavors and brewing techniques in the Barrel Room year after year, and what continues to energize us is that our beer quest hasn't changed. It's my life's work to elevate people's thinking about beer and to push the boundaries of traditional brewing in order to offer beer lovers an inspired drinking experience. Today, Utopias is our best example of that quest."

Samuel Adams Utopias is brewed with several different strains of yeast, including a variety typically reserved for champagne. A blendof two-row Caramel and Munich malts gives the beer its rich ruby-black color and the blend of three kinds of Noble hops; Spalt Spalter, Hallertau Mittelfrueh, and Tettnang Tettnanger give the beer its floral character and spicy note. The 2009 batch of Samuel Adams Utopias is a blend of liquids, some of which have been aged in a variety of woods, including Scotch whiskey barrels in the Barrel Room at the Boston Brewery for up to 16 years. This longer aging gives the 2009 batch of Utopias a level of complexity not seen in earlier releases. A portion of the beer was also aged in hand-selected, single-use bourbon casks from the Buffalo Trace Distillery. The extended aging process enhances the distinct cinnamon, vanilla, and maple notes in the beer's flavor. This year's batch was finished in sherry casks from Spain and muscatel and port casks from Portugal. The sherry casks add nutty, oak, and honey notes, while the muscatel and port casks contribute slightly more elegant, dark fruit aromas and flavors.

The limited-edition 2009 batch of Samuel Adams Utopias are bottled in numbered, ceramic brew kettle shaped decanters. The small batch release comes from just 53 barrels all brewed, blended and aged at the Samuel Adams Brewery in Boston. The exclusive, limited distribution are available at select specialty beer and liquor stores starting for a suggested retail price of $150.00 per bottle.

2009 Utopias will be showcased at the Taste of Elegance Chefs Food and Beer Competition on June 9, 2010, Omni Interlocken Tickets now on sale at www.denverbeercomp.com/order.html
