    The Beer Trappe still has a partial bottle. They will serve you a 1.5 oz. taste for $20.

    I don't think they distribute Utopias this far, probably have to travel further north. Beer Trappe had 2 bottles, I assumed someone brought them down? Which technically wouldn't be illegal since Sam Adams is generally distributed in this area anyways?

    I might be completely wrong with every single part of this reply.

    Utopias hit Louisville a long time ago. Utopias hits pretty much every state with Sam Adams distributed in it.

    As far as I know, Brett got those two bottles via legal channels. And like I said, they still has some Saturday night.

    I heard that Liquor Barn said they were getting some bottles.

    I bought 2 of the 2012 Utopias from Beaumont Liquor Barn on 11/14/2012 so it has come and gone.

    It was an impulse buy, that's for sure.

    If you want to go for a drive, you could check the Chuck's liquor stores in Bowling Green. I picked up a 2009 Utopias at the location on Veterans Memorial Lane back in October. One of the other locations that I checked at the time said they were expecting the 2012 but that it wasn't in stock yet. I was on vacation a little southeast of Nashville at the time, and I made the drive from there to get my 2009 bottle.

    I just saw another post in my regional forum about Utopias sighting at Costco. They've been showing up at various Costco's around the country. You may want to check with them if you haven't already. Price is low, as you would expect from Costco.

    Just saw an LB tweet that says Beaumont has some.

    Who the hell is finding it for 150? Try 200 at liquor barn. Ridiculous markup.
