Sam Adams Longshot
In my inbox this morning (emphasis mine):
Once the competitive dust had settled, California-resident Alex Drobshoffs' Traditional Bock emerged the big winner. Alex's beer will be joined in the LongShot six-pack by California-resident Mike McDole's Double IPA and Samuel Adams Employee Carissa Sweigart's Cranberry Wit. Mike's Double IPA won acclaim from the judges in 2007, but due to the worldwide hops shortage and a desire to preserve the integrity of the beer's recipe, calling for seven hop varieties, Mike elected to delay the brewing of his beer for the 2009 LongShot package.
Look for the 2009 Samuel Adams LongShotÂ® Variety 6-pack nationwide in select retail stores beginning in April.
