High-Brow Beer Costs $100 Per Bottle

NEW YORK -- A hundred bucks might seem cheap for a bit of utopia.
But in this case, Utopia is a beer brewed by the Samuel Adams company. It sells for $100 a bottle.
Earlier this week, beer lovers got a chance to sample the high-brow brew at the Hop Devil Grill in New York City. Shot-sized servings were included as part of a $40-a-head beer lover's four-course dinner.
This is a brew to sip not swill. Some of the patrons say Utopia is closer to cognac or whiskey than to beer. The bar bought four bottles of the pricey, 50-proof brew.
