    North America's Strongest Beer

    Our world is full of surrender at the first sign of adversity, do not give up when the challenge meets you, meet the challenge. Through perseverance comes the rewards, the rewards that make life so enjoyable.

    Seize the day, trusting little in the future.

    if you want something, go after it. if you want to screw someone over, look DEEP in your heart and realize Karma is a bitch

    Any mention of Sam Adams and Dogfish Head together is just unfair to Dogfish Head.

    The biggest problem with Utopias is that it doesn't taste very good. More power to the SA folks for pushing the envelope, but I certainly won't be forking over the nearly $200 for a bottle any time soon. At $10 a bottle I'll drink the World Wide Stout or 120 Minute IPA (both 20ish% ABV) instead.

    I had a squatters brewery beer "the devastator" - a double bock at 8% for lunch. I got tipsy. I did not pay $150.00 for it.

    It was quite tasty though.

    A friend's girlfriend who knows I'm into beer and does PR type work for Sam Adams gave me a bottle on Thanksgiving. Not a fan at all. I'd feel incredibly stupid if I had paid $150 for it. In fact, I'll be hard pressed to find an occasion to finish the bottle. To me, once alcohol gets about 12% or so, it gets in the way of drinkability, partly due to booziness, partly due to the inevitably large amount of residual sugars remaining after fermentation. When you're talking beer, who cares how good it tastes if you don't even want to finish your glass because it's too overwhelming.

    the picture of that "beer" make it look incredibly unappetizing

    looks like the pushed the envelope straight into the garbage to me

    or a lot like the sake of doing something because they can.

    Samual Adams makes more than a few tasty beers. Their cream stout is one of my favorites. No need to shit on them just cuz they're not a microbrewery.

    We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.

    They really aren't on the same level, imho. I am an admitted beer snob and have drank many a Sam Adams beer--but I would definitely choose a Dog Fish Head 60, 90, or 120 minute IPA over a Sam Adams anything. Although the keg of Winter Lager in the kegerator is pretty tasty and is growing on me. Now, if the Boston Beer Co came out with a IIPA or just a good IPA I would probably change my mind.

    Just posting to spout my love for Dogfish Head. They get me drunk quite often and they make my mouth very happy in the process.

    Not sure I grasp the whole "unfair" comment. I, too, love Dogfish Head. I'm from Boston and I'll take 'em over Sam Adams. If only I could find their beer in Bozeman.

    ^^^^

    Gator, FYI, you get slightly more buzz/dollar with the 90 min:

    4.75% * 6 = .285
    9% * 4 = .36

    .36/10 = .036

    which is greater than

    .285/8 = .035625

    That's without even considering how much tastier 90 min is.

    Dont get me wrong, dogfish head is the shizzle. I'm a big fan of their palo alto marron. but Samuel Adams doesnt deserve to be written off either...what other big commercial brewery has a beer for pretty much every style, 4 different imperials and all kinds of seasonals available in all 50 states? They might be a big commercial entity now but Jim Koch started as a homebrewer just like the rest of us. he's just the one out of a million that made it hbig

    I like both Sammy Adams and DFH (yes, also prefer the latter) but this whole "strongest beer" thing needs to go the way of the Dodo. It's fucking stupid.

    Agreed. I choose beer for the flavor, not the alcohol content. As mentioned, most really high alcohol content beers don't taste good. One of my faves is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and at near 7% it's plenty strong enough for me. If all I want to do is get drunk for cheap I'll buy something awful like Mickey's ice or go straight to Vodka.

    From a pure brewing science sense its actually pretty cool, but other than that I couldn't agree more.

    I've had the Utopias and a buddy is hooking me up with that 32% penguin beer but I've yet to have anything that is really drinkable over %20.

    Nothing more than a novelty beverage.
    You're gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker donts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?
