Corning, NY–Tom Reed praised the ingenuity of the winner of Sam Adam’s ‘Long Shot’ beer contest.  “I want to say congratulations to Duane Wilson, of Horseheads, for winning the Sam Adams ‘Long Shot’ beer contest,” said Tom Reed.  “It’s a true testament to the ingenuity here in the Southern Tier and what New Yorkers can accomplish when they commit to accomplishing a goal.”

For over 20 years, Sam Adams has offered local brewers across the nation a chance to have their beer produced and distributed through their ‘Long Shot’ beer contest.

“It’s so great to see our community coming together and making its mark on our nation,” continued Reed.  “Right here in Elmira, Anchor Glass has been producing the bottles used by Sam Adams; just another example of our potential here in the Southern Tier. I care about this community and am fighting for fair policies to address our needs. I am always proud to see it succeed.”
