The John G. Doble III Memorial Scholarship

The Florida Brewers Guild has teamed up with the Siebel Institute of Technology to provide a full tuition scholarship each year for the World Brewing Academy Concise Course in Brewing Technology held each fall in Chicago. Eligibility requirements for the scholarship are listed below. The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of financial and technical need of both the brewer and the brewery.

The Selection Committee is comprised of members from the Florida Brewers Guild. The Selection Committee reserves the right to not award this scholarship. The recipient of the Scholarship will have responsibility for all other costs.


John G. Doble III (1965-2003)

Born in a U.S. Military Hospital in Frankfurt, Germany, John Doble was the Co-Founder and Brew-Master of Tampa Bay Brewing Company in Ybor City and the Brew Shack, Beer & Wine Homebrew Supply & Beer Retail Store in Tampa, Florida. Prior to Tampa, Sergeant John Doble, Airborne/ Ranger/ Infantry, was with the 1st BN, 75th Ranger Regiment, First Infantry Division, “The Big Red One” and the 101st Airborne (Airmobile) Division. He went from traveling around the world as part of a military family, to driving an armored Infantry carrier across the dusty Moroccan desert, to graduating as a Brewmaster from the world’s premier brewing school, The Siebel Institute of Technology.

Johnny’s dedication to excellence in both food and beer was nationally renowned as the Tampa Bay Brewing Company was selected as one of the top four restaurant/breweries in America for beer infused food. He was brilliant, highly creative and a tireless worker fitting more into his short 37 years than the average person does in three lifetimes. He was a natural leader, brewer and chef, a free spirit who lived life to its fullest. He was compassionate, yet intolerant to those who did not perform to his high expectations. He was a devoted father to his son Chris, who unlike many other eldest sons and fathers were inseparable – they did everything together as the best of friends. Johnny’s ashes have been embedded into an eternal artificial reef, placed in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Sarasota, the place where he, his father and brothers spent their last scuba diving trip together. An American hero, a loving father and a successful Tampa businessman with a great passion for life that he lived to the fullest, John Doble will be sorely missed.

About Glen Hay Falconer

 

Passion, dedication, and creativity defined Glen Falconer’s beers and his entire approach to life.

Glen began his brewing career as an avid homebrewer and dedicated member of the Cascade Brewers Society, a clan of skilled homebrewers based in the Eugene/Springfield, Oregon area. As a professional brewer, Glen continued to support the craft of homebrewing by providing access to brewing ingredients, procedures and unique beer recipes.

In 1990, Glen followed his dream and pursued a professional brewing career, beginning at Steelhead Brewery in Eugene. Glen completed the Siebel Concise Course in Brewing Technology in 1994. Glen then refined his skills at the renowned Rogue Ales in Newport, Oregon, working side-by-side with his close friend and mentor John Maier.

In 1996, Glen became head brewer at the Wild Duck Brewery in Eugene, providing six regular beers on tap as well as a wide variety of specialty ales and lagers each season. Glen continued as head brewer at the Wild Duck until his untimely death in 2002.

Enlarging on the tradition of brewing, laughing heartily and embracing adventure fully represented Glen’s life. While Glen won numerous professional craft brewing prizes and accolades, perhaps his finest accomplishment was the back-to-back Gold Medals received posthumously for his Auld Gnarly Head Barley Wine at the 2002 and 2003 Great American Beer Festival.
