As you may know, the beer company releases a new version of its Utopias brand every couple of years. But this year’s won’t be sold in 15 states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont and West Virginia.

The new brew will contain 28% alcohol by volume, more than five times the potency of typical U.S. brews.

The company says it’s only making around 13,000 bottles.

For those who will be able to buy it, it will cost you $240 for a 25-ounce bottle.

It will be available for purchase Oct. 11.
