About the 2016 LongShot winners:

  • David Cousino's Saison, Avon, OH
    David began homebrewing nearly 25 years ago in college, and, after a long hiatus, jumped back into brewing 4 years ago. As a pharmacist, he now applies the precision of his profession to his homebrews--moving well beyond his days of extract brewing in college. David's Saison imparts a soft malt character, delicate floral notes and a hint of pepper.
  • Duane Wilson's American Wild Ale, Horseheads, NY
    Duane and his co-brewer Mike Edwards have been brewing regularly for eight years and strive to constantly improve on the styles they create. Duane's mixed-fermentation American wild ale brew leads with an aroma of apricots. Kumquats impart a dry, fruity flavor and the brew finishes with a pleasant, lingering tartness.
  • Graham Johnson's Imperial Stout, Marblehead, MA
    Graham works in Business Analysis for Samuel Adams and has a passion for homebrewing.  Graham's Imperial Stout uses whole coffee beans and chocolate and has decadent flavors of cocoa, espresso with hints of brandy and raisin, and finishes with a lingering sweetness.
