Application for Glen Hay Falconer Foundation Brewing Scholarships

For your convenience, the application is located here

In collaboration with the American Brewers Guild, we are offering a full-tuition scholarship to the Guild’s Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering program.

The Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering course is a 22-week distance education program with a final week of residential instruction.  The course is designed for brewers and homebrewers who lack formal training in brewing science and covers all the fundamentals of beer production and quality assurance.

The American Brewers Guild is a premier school for the craft brewing industry dedicated to providing a comprehensive learning experience that focuses on the technical, scientific, and operational matters and issues that brewers face in a craft brewing environment.

The American Brewers Guild is now accepting applications for the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation slot in the Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering course that runs from January 19, 2015 through June 26, 2015 with the final week of onsite instruction in Middlebury, Vermont.  The full application must be received no later than November 11, 2014.  Note: This class is full except for this scholarship slot.

The scholarship is open to professional brewers and homebrewers from the states of Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Hawaii and California’s northern geographic region (San Francisco/Monterey Bay areas and north).  The full-tuition scholarship also includes a $1,000 stipend to help offset travel and lodging expenses for the residential week in Middlebury, Vermont.  Full details and scholarship applications are available at http://www.abgbrew.com.

The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities for professional and aspiring craft brewers from the Pacific Northwest to further their knowledge and expertise.  For more information on the Foundation please visit www.glenfalconerfoundation.org and follow us on Facebook.

We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2014 Greg Noonan Scholarship. This award was developed to continue Greg's legacy and honor his contributions to craft brewing.

Congratulations to Brett Bauer from Watertown MA.

The caliber of candidate was exceptional and all were deserving of winning the scholarship. Choosing a winner was a painstaking and incredibly difficult process. The winning candidate was chosen by a panel of experienced and credentialed brewmasters from across the country. The panel consisted of:

Dan DelGrande
Brewmaster/Owner, Bison Brewing Company, Oakland, CA
Russ Fitzgerald
Brewmaster, Vermont Pub and Brewery, Burlington, VT
Nick Funnell
Brewmaster, and Sales rep for Brewers Supply Group
Scott Shirley
Brewmaster, Harpoon Brewery in Windsor VT

The winning candidate Brett Bauer impressed several of the panel with his motivation and approach to getting into the industry. One of the panel said of Brett, "he exemplifies the characteristics that I believe would make a great brewer: he is passionate about craft beer, hard-working, enthusiastic, a continuous learner and is overall and outstanding candidate."

Congratulations to Brett Bauer, winner of the 2014 Greg Noonan Scholarship!
