Zack Adams

Zack Adams (right) won the 2012 LongShot American Homebrew Contest, hosted by the Samuel Adams beer company. He is shown with his friend, Pat Lloyd (left), and Jim Koch, co-founder and chair of Boston Beer Co. Zack’s beer, a double India pale ale called Magnificent Seven, is brewed with seven varieties of American hops. Produced and distributed nationally by Samuel Adams, his beer is available with those of the other two winners in the 2013 Samuel Adams LongShot Variety Six-Pack. He emails, “I hope to take the positive feedback from this experience and start a brewery in southeastern Connecticut.”
