The LongShot American Homebrew winners at The Great American Beer Festival in Denver are:  Tamarac, Florida resident Russ Brunner’s American Stout, Evanston, Illinois resident Cesar Marron’s Grätzer 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 for a suggested retail price of $7.99 – $9.99 (price varies by market).  The variety pack will include two bottles each of Russ Brunner’s American Stout, Cesar Marron’s Grätzer and Teresa Bury’s Pineapple IPA.

Each beer was carefully evaluated on the aroma, appearance, flavor and mouthfeel according to the style category under which it was submitted.
