    I just picked up a bottle of Utopias. Anyone here had it before? Deliberating over aging it for a while or digging in. I'm excited and eager to get into it, but at the cost, I want to do it right. Any best practice suggestions?

    I'm a very practical and frugal guy. But I love good beer, and under current circumstances, this may have been a once in a lifetime chance for me to score this rare beer. So I splurged. And so I want to make it worth every penny by pouring it on the right occasion, after the right amount of time, and with the right food.

    It's porcelain, I think, but looks copper. Very nice bottle.

    They have 4 of these at the big shop near me. Tried to pick one up for Gene but the price is poppycock and offensive.

    Don't know yet, but the cost must be similar.

    Looks like I may be the first around here to give it a try. So whenever that is, I'll post details.
