CdA Brewer Makes Sam Adams Finals

Steve Anderson's face may soon appear on Samuel Adams beer bottles across the nation, bottles containing his very own "70% Wheat" home-brewed creation. Anderson, of Coeur d'Alene, found out the evening of July 4 that he is one of the top nine contenders in the Samuel Adams 2014 Longshot American Homebrew Contest, which challenges homebrewers to send samples of their best beer to Boston and put their brewing skills to the taste test. "It's like the appeal for any hobby that you do when you're making things," he said. "It's just knowing that you can do at home what they're doing on a factory level." Anderson's 70% Wheat traditional German-style beer, created through the all-grain homebrew process, has beat thousands of entries and may win him an all-expense-paid trip to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver this October if he places in the top three/Devin Heilman, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Have you ever made home-made beer?
