Glen Hay Falconer (1961-2002) was a man who did more than he probably imagined for craft beer in the Pacific Northwest. A young Falconer began his professional career began at Steelhead Brewing in Eugene in 1990. The brewer took his passion to the next level by completing the Siebel Concise Course in Brewing Technology four years later. Soon after, Falconer began working in Newport with Rogue’s John Maier, one of the nation’s most recognized brewmasters. In 1996, Falconer assumed the role of head brewer at the now defunct Wild Duck Brewery of Eugene. His untimely death,a decade ago at the age of 40, was a huge loss to the craft beer world. However, it is quite evident how much he is loved, as his spirit lives on through the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, a not-for-profit organization with a mission to “contribute to the Northwest craft brewing community by providing opportunities for professional and aspiring brewers to further their knowledge and expertise. The Foundation is also committed to honoring Glen’s broader interests by working with the Northwest Legends Foundation to contribute directly to local Eugene-based organizations that represent his ideals and passions.”
Today the Falconer Foundation offers the opportunity of offering two educational scholarships to the World Academy of Brewing at the Siebel Institute and one to the American Brewer’s Guild. It was recently announced that the 2012 scholarships are now being accepted by the foundation. If you are a brewer or aspiring brewer located here in the Pacific Northwest, you are encouraged to apply. Here are the details: Read More…
