Default Ben Miller wins big

A friend and fellow Dukes of Ale member, Ben Miller had a really big time at the GABF.. His barleywine was selected for the Sam Adams Longshot six pack AND his Pro-Am beer took gold. Not bad for one weekend!

Keep your eye on this guy - if he doesn't go places it will be a loss to the brewing world!

No. The Longshot is a Barleywine, the Pro-Am is an IPA

Yea, I'm disappointed I didn't get to meet him at GABF. I'd like to get some of that mojo.

Congrats to him.

I hope winning the Long Shot isn't like the Chunky Soup curse for football players. The last guy that won the Long Shot is a huge douche bag.

Ben is going to be on the Brewing Network this evening, Sunday. I will be interested to see what he has to say. 5 pm Pacific time.
