Samuel Adams’ Utopia

sam adams utopiaSamuel Adams' Utopias are one of the most expensive beers in the world, and also the strongest. This beer is strong, rich and dark, has almost no carbonation and should be savored. It is made by the Boston Brew Company that took the brand name of one of America's founding members, Samuel Adams. Mr. Adams himself was supposedly a brewer!

Samuel Adams Utopia is brewed with all four kinds of Noble hops, giving it an herbal, earthly taste. They use a variety of yeast, such as the kind used in champagne. It has been aged in Scotch, Cognac and Port barrels. They are packaged into collectible copper-finished brew kettle decanter, resembling antique beer. Because of this unique brewing and packaging, this beer tastes more like vintage Port, Cognac or sherry.

It is 54 proof, so you can definitely taste the alcohol, and it tastes warm without any residual burn. Its taste resembles caramel, cherry, vanilla, dark fruits and even wood. It has been reviewed as overpowering, yet pleasant. It is meant for people to sip, not to gulp, and is very thick. Many think it has more of a smell than a taste, and its smell resembles fine whiskey. It leaves a strong, dry, enjoyable aftertaste.

This is a collector's item. Each bottle is individually serialized. It retailed for $100 per bottle, but you can buy it from individuals for an assorted variety of prices.

Purchase: eBay, Internet Wines (temporarily out of stock). You must be over 21 to buy it.

    Purebot Plastic Water Bottle: The Only Safe One?

    plastipure-purebot-bottleHydrapak, a company that produces hydration packs and gel-pack bottles for serious sports competitors recently announced the Purebot plastic bottle. Supposedly the Purebot bottle, which is made with PlastiPure technology is the "first plastic reusable water bottle that is completely free of estrogenic activity, otherwise known as EA. EA, a common byproduct of plastic manufacturing has been linked to health problems especially in women and young children.

    The Purebot is designed to be used in applications with a bottle holder, such as on your bicycle, but could be used as a "regular" reusable water bottle.

    Details:

    • Capacity: 24oz
    • Screw Top Lid
    • Price: $9.99 ea, or 3 for $24.99
    • Where to Buy: hydrapak.com

    Plastic bottle health concerns has been in the news a lot lately, and even alternative metal bottles by companies such as SIGG are not immune. And, as evidenced by companies such as SIGG, we may not be told of the problems until later, even if known.

    This just makes me wonder, will the new Purebot be truly safe, or will there be concerns found later? If this truly is safer, at $9.99 you could afford to outfit your entire family with a new one for each day of the year, even after giving a few to your housekeepers and butlers.

    The next time you reach for your iPhone 3G as it rings to the sound of your favorite money-themed song, you'll take pride o'millionaire in knowing you laid out some 2.5 million for a diamond-studded Apple mobile.

    This special Apple iPhone 3G, designed by jeweler Peter Aloisson, does all the standard tech stuff you've read about. You bought it though for the bling, not the tech features, right? Your 2.5 million gets you a phone case made out of 18 carat yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. A white gold line is encrusted with 138 diamonds.

    138 diamonds might sound good, but consider this: the centerpiece of this is a 6.6 carat diamond, known as the "Kings Button," which takes the place of the traditional home button. That is one hell of a home button we think.
