The new Sam Adams Halloween beer is banned in 15 states but Illinois is not one of them.

I have friends that love all things beer. They get very excited to try new flavors and kinds. I think they would get even more fired up about a brew that is so strong it's illegal in some states. Lucky for them, Sam Adams released one like that and you're all good to drink it in Illinois.

According to,

"Samuel Adams new "extreme beer" is so ridiculously strong, it's literally illegal in 15 states. The brewery's latest release in the barrel-aged Utopias line, which boasts an intoxicating 28 percent alcohol by volume. For comparison's sake, Sam Adams' Boston Lager is at 5 percent."  

"A spokesperson for Samuel Adams confirmed to due to its high level of alcohol, this already rare brew is banned in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, and West Virginia."

The special beer is limited edition and only 77 barrels were made. It will cost $210 per bottle.

Now, that's what I call catching a buzz.
