Default 2009 Longshot.

It appears I received my 2009 Longshot stuff in the mail today, the SWMBO just shot me an e-mail saying I received a large padded envelope from the Boston Beer Company "Longshot 2009". I'll update once I get home.

Ya know... I've been trying to find the longshot beers since they started selling them commercially. I haven't had any luck.

So does this mean you are entering? I might decide to do this at some point, just for fun.

I've had a couple of them, but they are usually kind of expensive, and I usually only like one of the two beers in the pack.

Sorry forgot I posted this....

I received my results for this year’s competition, I think registration was in April.

The envelope contained the results sheets for my Chokolat Porter and my Dirty Blonde, (they scored 35 and 38 respectively), and a pretty nice Samuel Adams hat with "LongShot 2009" embroidered on the back and "2009 Homebrewer" on the left side.

I'll take a picture of it when I get home and post it here.

I really dig the hat. That alone was worth entering the comp. The feedback was inline with what I expected for this brew and very much worth the $0.00 entry fee.

Yeah, I got mine back this weekend as well. I entered an American Stout and got a 36 on it. Mostly, the only negatives was that it lacked complexity. Hat is nice, but I don't wear hats so...

I entered two beers (shipped them together at same time) and only got results for one of my beers. Anyone else experience this? I am hoping another packet comes in the mail with the score sheets from my honey brown. We ended up with a 34 on our chocolate coffee oatmeal stout - that's not bad considering it was the first recipe we created and only the 3rd brew we ever made. Looking back at the recipe now, I'm not sure how it made beer! The recipe is FUBAR lol

People are getting their results finally? Awesome! I hope my sheets come in soon, I took best in class in IPA in western region, I can't wait to read my scores for that IPA and the others I entered.

This exact same thing happened to me. Don't count on it coming. I noticed online that they never received my other beer and immediately emailed and even eventually talked to them on the phone... they never found it.

Both my beers registered online, and showed that they had arrived safe and sound. Now maybe something happened to the bottles AFTER they arrived, but I am still hoping I get feedback.
