Three Tigers releasing beer, scholarship in brewer’s memory

Written by on January 13, 2020 in Beer - No comments

The final beer from Three Tigers Brewing’s head brewer Patrick Gangwer will be released at the Granville taproom later this month supporting a scholarship in his name.

Sadly, Patrick succumbed to cancer last spring. Before his passing, he put down a Moroccan Truffle Stout in Apple Brandy barrels and 12 months later, the 12% ABV stout has been bottled.

Three Tigers owner Scott Wilkens announced the establishment of the Patrick Gangwer Brewers Apprentice Scholarship Fund in conjunction with this bottle release. The objective of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to young men and women in Ohio interested in learning the brewer’s art.

“I feel so blessed to have been able to work with Patrick during his time at Three Tigers on so many levels,” said Wilkens. “He was so passionate about his craft. He was so gifted, yet he was always looking for ways to get better. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about Patrick. I miss him so much and can’t wait to honor him by helping others on their path to becoming a part of the industry that he loved and respected so much.”

This limited-edition barrel aged stout, Big Fish, will be available Sunday, January 26 starting at 1:30pm in 22oz bottles for a $35 donation, with a three bottle per person limit.

Three Tigers is located at 140 N. Prospect in Granville.
