Home brewer is briefly big time

Home brewer Bruce Stott might have been a bit self-effacing when he named his beer Longshot, but he now has wound up head and mug ahead of a lot of his contemporaries.

The Cape Cod resident was one of two home brewers to win a national contest held in 2006 by Boston Beer Co., maker of Sam Adams. As a result, his beer is part of a limited edition Samuel Adams six-pack being introduced in March.

Longshot is a Dortmunder Style Export rated 3.91 of a possible five points by contributors to Beer Advocate.com's rating system.

This year's Samuel Adams American Homebrew Contest will accept entries from April 15 to May 1. Winners will be announced in October at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival. Details are available here.
