The never ending Beer Week!

I thought I'd get a little break from beer events this week, but when you get an exclusive invitation to try the world's strongest beer, you jump at the chance. Samuel Adams is releasing Utopias this month and are holding private dinners pairing some of their great beers with specific dishes. Last night the event I attended was held at Urban Solace on 30th St in North Park. I was treated to an amazing four course meal prepared by Chef Matt Gordon. Highlight of the evening was the after dinner tasting, which included a 1994 Samuel Adams Triple Bock and the 2009 Utopias. Utopias shattered the world record for highest alcohol content with a 27% abv. Is it sherry, is it port, is it cognac, or is it beer? My palate could have been easily fooled. A great experience and a big thanks to the Samuel Adams crew and everyone at Urban Solace.
