The recipient of the 2014 Glen Hay Falconer Foundation scholarship to the American Brewers Guild has been announced and this year’s recipient is Daniel Russo from Oakshire Brewing of Eugene, OR. Dan will be attending the American Brewers Guild’s Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering course that runs from January through June 2014. 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.
In making its final decision, the Selection Committee members were impressed by Dan’s passion, dedication, and work ethic. They cited his roots as an innovative homebrewer, tireless contributions to the broader brewing community and genuine interest in living the ideals of the Falconer Foundation. In the words of a committee member: “Dan possesses a great combination of brewing talent, diligence, and understanding of the many disciplines of running and promoting brewery operations. With the ABG education and his front-of-the-house experience, Dan will be an enormous asset to the success of the overall brewery.” The mission of the Foundation resonated in Dan, as another committee member highlighted: “What struck me about Dan was that he took the time and energy to learn about Glen and the Foundation.” Read More…
