SpoonFed: Via PR Newswire

Today Samuel Adams is proud to reveal the latest class of LongShot American Homebrew winners at The Great American Beer Festival in Denver – craft beer’s biggest stage. Besting more than 1,000 entries – this year’s winners include Tamarac, Florida resident Russ Brunner’s American Stout, Evanston, Illinois resident Cesar Marron’s Gratzer and Samuel Adams employee Teresa Bury’s Pineapple IPA. Winners will receive the ultimate honor in beer – for their homebrew recipes to be enjoyed by drinkers across the country.  These winning brews will be bottled and made available nationwide next year in the 2014 Samuel Adams LongShot variety six-pack.

Jim Koch, Samuel Adams founder and brewer, hosts the annual LongShot homebrew contest to recognize the most talented homebrewers in the country – those who continue to push boundaries and elevate the possibilities of craft beer as Koch did in 1984 with Samuel Adams Boston Lager. America’s interest in homebrewing and craft beer is at an all time high and the craft beer landscape has exploded into more than 2,500 craft breweries, compared to the 83 that existed during the 1980s. This growth is due to resilient craft brewers like Koch and the 2013 LongShot winners, who lead with a passion for quality craft beer and drive to experiment and push the boundaries of brewing.  [...] read more
