Anthony Stone wins Falconer scholarship

Anthony Stone of Boundary Bay Brewing has won the 2012 Glen Hay Falconer Foundation American Brewers Guild scholarship. This scholarship attracted a very strong group of highly qualified applicants from throughout the Pacific Northwest region.

Stone will attend the ABG’s Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering course. 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 Stone’s work ethic, passion, and contributions to the broader brewing community. In the words of committee members, Stone “embraces his homebrewing roots in the truest sense, even teaching homebrewing at a local college.” Stone “continually demonstrates his hunger for knowledge” and “dedication to improving his knowledge base and to sharing this with others.”

The scholarship is a partnership between ABG and the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, a non-profit organization created to commemorate and celebrate the life, interests, and good works of Glen Hay Falconer.
