With over 30 distinctive, award-winning styles of beer, Samuel Adams, known for producing America’s most expensive beer, has been brewing quality, handcrafted, full-flavored beers using the time-honored, traditional four-vessel brewing process, ever since its inception back in 1984 by founder and brewer Jim Koch. And, in an effort to change American beer drinkers’ perception of what beer can be, while challenging himself as brewer, Jim Koch introduced the first batch of Samuel Adams Utopias with complex flavor profile unlike any other beer, back in 2002. Now in year 2012, Jim Koch proudly unveiled the 10th anniversary batch of Samuel Adams Utopias, which is brewery’s extreme, and most renowned barrel-aged beer that actually let the drinker take pride in his beer.
