So you want Sam Adams to find a homebrewer that can SERIOUSLY brew some good beer, and then set that brewer up to a self-sufficient competitor to Sam Adams?

Send in your beer and if it wins dont sell it to them for 5 grand and make a big thing about it on the news. Then start your own brewery ... Your marketing will be done which costs millions of dollars...all you have to do is BREW...

Yea that sounds stupid huh? But what they are giving is just as stupid. I am glad I found this today. I was on the fence if I was gonna send out the beers today or not and now I know which side of the fence I am on. All I am saying is they could do better for the winner.

By entering, you already agree (legally binding) to sell them the recipe and let them brew it if you are selected the champion.

The loophole you are trying to exploit doesn't exist.

If I had one of my own recipes that I thought was good, I wouldn't hesitate to send it in. I really could care less about the money, or even giving them the rights to the brew (note: this does not prevent you from continuing to make it, just from marketting it, something you, as a homebrewer,can't do anyways). I just think it would be neat to have that huge boost of fame, and from then on be known as an awesome brewer. To me, that is worth far more than any recipe I will ever create.

If you send in a recipe, the best that can happen is that you win, the worst is that you are the same place you are in right now. I don't understand why you wouldn't enter, unless you have some super recipe that you plan on making more than $5K off of.

well put.

I might enter a couple, and I could care less if Sam Adams makes an assload of money off of it. I would get the recognition (and the $5k). If I don't enter, I just have 4 more bottles of homebrew to drink.

also, if you do win, you can always approach the company and tell them, "I've got a lot more recipes. I'd be willing to sell them to you if you want to work out a deal."

That my friend is a better satisfaction to me than 5k and someone making a$$loads of money off of it in my book.

At the least, if I won, I should be able to walk into just about any microbrewery in the country, and get a free beer. Not only that, but I might be able to get a job as a brewmaster as well. Maybe even use the notoriety to get financial support to open my own brewpub. Lots of good could come out of it. The only downside is sending in 4 bottles of my best stuff.
