Available Utopia Close To Boston (2012-12-15)

Discussion in 'New England' started by nawset, Dec 15, 2012.

  1. Two hours ago, I stumbled upon two 2012 Utopia's at a bottle shop within 30 miles of Boston. I bought one. If interested in grabbing the second one, please PM me and I will let you know where it is. They were charging $199. Serious inquiries only. First come, first served.
  2. So you went to Kappy's in Medford?

  3. Nope actually, it wasn't there but if it is known that they can be had close to Boston then this is no big deal. I thought there might be a scramble for it (thus the PM approach).

    Gasbarros in Attleboro had two bottles not to long ago. The $199 price tag makes them slow to move.

    I agree and at a much cheaper price than $199

    It's all over the place. I've seen it in more than a half dozen shops from Boston to Metrowest to the South Shore priced from $179-$199
    Sam spreads the wealth. .
  10. There are more stores with it than stores without it right now. And you really don't need to pay $199 if you look a bit.

    It's odd - I feel like the Boston market just doesn't really care about this beer relative to other areas of the country that go nuts for it where people pay $250/bottle. Yet we probably get more than anyone...

    Copeland Package in Quincy has em for 165 or 170. I can't remember exactly.
  12. Wow. I had no idea. No longer feel like I scored. It it was on the same day that I picked up my Westy brick, a FW 16 and three four-packs of BCBS. Thought I was the luckiest man on earth.

    Reading these forums I always end up spending more than I want to because when I see something billed as super limited I jump at it. Then I see it two weeks later for $5 less than I paid and I end up not liking it much anyway.
  14. Oh to have that kind of expendable income.
  15. There are two at my store. We also have a couple fruets and BCBS.
  16. Had to sell a kidney and promise my wife that I would drink natty light until spring.
