We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2016 Greg Noonan Scholarship. This award was developed to continue Greg's legacy and honor his contributions to craft brewing. 

Congratulations to Bev Armstrong 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, Bev Armstrong, impressed several of the panel with her motivation and approach to getting into the industry. One of the panel said of Bev, "she exemplifies the characteristics that I believe would make a great brewer: she is passionate about craft beer, hard-working, enthusiastic, a continuous learner and is overall an outstanding candidate."

Congratulations to Bev Armstrong, winner of the 2016 Greg Noonan Scholarship!
