Fernie Brewing Honours Late Brewmaster Gord Demaniuk with The Professor Märzen

FERNIE, BC – Fernie Brewing has announced details of a new limited edition release that pays tribute to Gord Demaniuk, the veteran brewmaster who passed away last year after a battle with cancer.

The Professor Märzen is described as follows:

Gord’s love for Lagers was well known and he was particularly interested in creating a Märzen, a Bavarian Lager. This commemorative, limited release brew stems from a partially created recipe found in Gord’s recipe book, completed with much love and respect by current Head Brewer and Gord’s son, Jeff Damniuk, along with FBC’s team of Brewers.

The Professor Märzen will be officially launched on Thursday October 5th with a Brats and Beers BBQ at the brewery. Running from 12:00 noon to 6:00 PM, the event will feature beer and bratwurst, with proceeds going to Fernie Friends for Friends, a charity that “helps individuals and families in Fernie who are going through cancer treatment and offers them financial and emotional support during this stressful time.”
