Sam Adams Releases Beer So Strong It is Illegal in Montana
One thing is clear when it comes to the fine folks that reside here in Montana...We sure do like our beer. But, not beer that can make you pass out in your neighbors rose bushes after one sip. Samuel Adams has created a beer that may make you stumble around a lot quicker than you would think. The only catch? It is only going to run you $199, and it is so strong it is illegal in 12 states.
According to Esquire
To brew this 28% ABV beer—which comes with a $199 price tag and is so alcoholic it’s banned in 12 states—Samuel Adams starts with a blend of two-row pale malt combined with Munich and Caramel 60 malts, which gives the beers its deep, ruby color. Then three varieties of German Noble hops, including Spalt Spalter, Hallertau Mittelfrueh, and Tettnang Tettnanger, are added to balance the malt’s sweetness.
Unfortunately for us here in Montana, we made the list of 12 states that have outlawed the high octane brew. The other states include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, and Washington.
But, even if you plan to make a pilgrimage to find the special brew, you may have a hard time. Sam Adams only brewed 13,000 bottles and they are going to go fast.
