Filebeats protocol load balancing to a single IP

I want to set up a pool of logstash processes for handling incoming data from many filebeats. I want to deploy them behind an AWS elastic load balancer (ELB) and I was wondering if there are any gotcha's. Will filebeats open multiple connections to the same IP? That way multiple flows can be established and load balanced by ELB?

I've successfully load balanced to the same host by specifying it with different ports. I don't see why it wouldn't work with the same port as each socket is independent of the other.
