May 25, 2011 - 12:30 PM--by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog--
Dave Pendelton, Head Brewer at Dicks Brewing Company, has been named one of the recipients of the 2011 Glen Hay Falconer Foundation Brewing Scholarships. This is a great honor and the Washington Beer Blog extends a hearty congratulations.
The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation is a non-profit organization created to commemorate and celebrate the life, interests, and good works of a well-loved and leading Northwest brewer. The mission of the Foundation is to contribute to the Northwest craft brewing community by providing opportunities for professional and aspiring brewers to further their knowledge and expertise.
For 2011, the Foundation is offering two educational scholarships to the World Academy of Brewing at the Siebel Institute. One of those scholarships has been awarded to Dave Pendelton of Dick's Brewing. The other was awarded to Jason Carriere, an accomplished home brewer from Eugene, OR.
According to a press release we received this afternoon.
Dave Pendelton is an accomplished head brewer at Dick's Brewing Company. Dave ran (and still owns) a home brew shop for seven years before entering the professional brewing ranks. Dave will be enrolled in the WBA Beer Production and Quality Control course that runs from June to September 2011. Selection Committee members highlighted Dave's "passion and enthusiasm not only for the art of brewing but also for helping others make great beer." They were impressed by Dave's steadfast commitment to Dick's Brewing, citing his "quest to master all the aspects of brewery production and operations." We wish Dave the best for the WBA Beer Production and Quality Control course.
The Foundation thanks the incredible Selection Committee for its dedication and energy. The 2011 Committee consisted of Tom Dalldorf of Celebrator Beer News, Jamie Floyd of Ninkasi Brewing Company, John Harris of Full Sail Brewing, John Maier of Rogue Ales, beer writer Lisa Morrison, author of "Craft Beer of the Pacific Northwest" and host of the "Beer O"Clock!" radio show, Ralph Olson of Hopunion, and Chris Studach of Cascade Brewers Society.
The Foundation expresses it gratitude to the Siebel Institute for its co-sponsorship and long-time support for the Foundation's brewing scholarship program. For information on the Siebel Institute, visit www.siebelinstitute.com.
