To be eligible to win, sign up for Alcademics A-Plus then send me an email that says "beer me" or something to that effect. You must be on the A-Plus list to win, and be 21 or over, of course. I'll give out the tickets Monday April 13th. (The event is not open to the public, unfortunately.)
The Longshot six-pack is made up of beers developed by homebrewers. They submit their entries- and there were over 1300 this year- to be tasted, and the best are included in the winning six-pack. More info from the press release:
The 2009 Samuel Adams LongShot variety six-pack will be available nationwide in select retail stores beginning April 2009 for a suggested retail price of $9.99. The variety pack will include two bottles each of Alex Drobshoff's Traditional Bock, Mike McDole's Double IPA and Carissa Sweigart’s Cranberry Wit.
