CINCINNATI -- A local man is a finalist in a Samuel Adams brewing contest.

Jason Roeper is the eastern finalist in the Longshot American Homebrew Contest.

Roeper took first place for best in show out of 1,350 entries from across the
nation.

The contest is part of an ad campaign the Boston Beer Co./Samuel Adams runs
every year.

Roeper and the other winners will be flown to Denver to take part in the Great
American Beer Festival.

At the event, Samuel Adams president Jim Koch will give out awards to the
finalists. He'll also announce which beers will be featured in the 2010 Longshot
Homebrew Variety six pack sampler.

The winners will brew their beer with Koch at his Boston brewery. Their beers
will be featured and released under the Samuel Adams brand.

Roeper also won a one-time royalty fee of $5,000.

In addition to his Samuel Adams try-out, Roeper is trying to start his own
brewery in the Tri-State. He launched the Lockland, Ohio-based Rivertown Brewing
Co. last year.

It must be extremely trying to judge 1350 different kinds of beer...

   I realize you're probably being tongue-in-cheek, but it's
not really much different from how the American Homebrewers
Association's National Homebrew COmpetition is done (they
probably do roughly twice that number annually). There are
regional first round competitions judged by (mostly) certified
beer judges. Only the best beers go on to the finals, making
it an easier task.
   And technically speaking, it's 1350 entries, in about 75
styles and substyles.
