This past Wednesday, Brendan, Chris and Tasha (of theglossier.com) and I attended the Samuel Adams Autumn Gala at Brendan’s and my current favourite bar in DC, Jack Rose! The event featured 20+ different Sam Adams beers on draft and the rare and absolutely delicious Samuel Adams Utopias! At the bar there were I believe, 6 bottles of the Utopias and one was set aside for the raffle drawing. After hearing about this, Brendan and I definitely had to go. We try our best to attend as many events at Jack Rose as they’re always featuring really great selections of beers and liquor from all over.
The Sam Adams beers on tap were:
Merry Maker Gingerbread Stout
Fat Jack Imperial Pumpkin
Grumpy Monk Belgian IPA
Imperial White (this I thought was super good)
Third Voyage IIPA
Cherry Chocolate Bock
Black & Brew Coffee Stout
Double Agent India Pale Lager
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider
But we came for the Sam Adams Utopias. a little background on the Utopias: it’s a 28% ABV beer that runs a steep $199 a bottle. Sam Adams only bottled up 100 barrels of them this year and one was up for grabs with a winning raffle ticket Wednesday night.
We all waited anxiously as the raffle numbers were called and there they were… two fists flying into the air in excitement followed by a loud ‘YESSSS!’. Brendan had the lucky ticket!
And here it is!
Had such a great time as we always do at Jack Rose! Really great events. Great atmosphere. Awesome staff. We’re looking forward to trying new beers, meeting new people and participating in more fun here. The menu is great too. If you’re looking for a place to have a good drink, but don’t know what you want, this is the place, they’ve got something for everyone!
Thanks to Nahem and everyone at Jack Rose!
