James Gilberg, the owner of Gongoozlers Brewery, named the beer in honor of his late godfather, the Rev. James Egbert. Egbert, a former minister at St. Paul United Church of Christ in New Bremen and Camp Washington United Church of Christ in Cincinnati, was a lover of German culture and craft beer. He worked for 15 years at Hofbräuhaus in Newport, Kentucky, and inspired Gilberg’s love for craft beer. Holobaugh and Moening are Egbert’s nieces.
