Samuel Adams beer maker Boston Beer Co. is ready to release its potent Utopias beer, which weighs in at 28% alcohol by volume – a strength that makes it illegal in 15 states.

Those lucky enough to get a bottle of the extremely limited – and pricey at $240 – beerwill get an additional taste treat from the 2,000 pounds of cherries it was finished on. Boston Beer releases Sam Adams Utopias every other year. Beginning Oct. 11, it will be available at select specialty beer, wine and liquor stores, where laws allow.

Often compared to a complex port or cognac – and sipped from a snifter at room temperature – Sam Adams Utopias is described as an “extreme” beer by the brewery. Some of the liquid has been aged nearly three decades in wooden bourbon casks, the brewery says.
