Eastern Shore Grocery is Selling a $230 Bottle of Beer

Posted: Updated:

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. (AP)- A gourmet grocery store on Virginia's Eastern Shore is selling a bottle of beer that costs $230. It's also so full of alcohol that it's illegal in more than a dozen states.           

The Daily Times of Salisbury, Maryland, reported Monday that Poseidon's Pantry in Chincoteague is selling a rare and much-coveted beer that's made by Sam Adams.           

The barrel-aged beer is called Utopias 2019. The custom-made bottle holds 25.4 ounces. The alcohol content is 28 percent, which is too much to be sold in 15 states.           

Shop co-owner Sarah Mason said the purchase was "kind of an impulse buy" for a store that's known to sell rare beers. She added that the beer "is a whole other level."           

Sam Adams recommends drinking an ounce of the beer at a time.
