Sam Adams Longshot Homebrew Finalists Announced


Every year the Boston Beer Company holds their Sam Adams Longshot American Homebrew Competition. Homebrewers from across the country send in sample bottles of their homebrew to be judged for a shot at commercial production by The Boston Beer Company. The four finalist beers are taken to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO for final judging. Once the judging is complete, the winner’s beer will be added to the Longshot Variety Pack. This includes two homebrew winners and a third winner of the Samuel Adams employee homebrew contest.

The finalists are:

Brewer: Ronald Mahan of Kentucky
Style: Maibock

Brewer: Ben Miller of New Mexico
Style: Barley Wine

Brewer: Michael Robinson of New Hampshire
Style: Old Ale

Brewer: Jason Roeper of Ohio
Style: Straight (Unblended) Lambic

    I have the winners from the 2008 contest in my fridge, I really liked the Double IPA … can’t wait to try the winners!

    This is a great concept. I haven’t tried any of these yet, but I will go look for them.

    Why are the Long Shot six-packs so hard to find? I go to several liquor store to ask if they have it and many of the proprietors are not even aware of it, much less have it.
