The Gentlemans Scholar Requiem Espresso Stout
From Gentleman’s Scholar – Founded in 2009, The Gentleman Scholar Brewing Co. is a newest addition to the Los Angeles craft beer scene. Good friends and business partners, Gianni Diaz and Martin Svab, created The Gentleman Scholar with a simple goal: to share their love of craft beer and coffee with Los Angeles. With years of success in the craft beer and coffee business, Mr. Diaz and Mr. Svab partnered up to launch their first beer, Requiem Espresso Stout, a fusion of three loves… artisanal coffee, craft beer, and the works of one of their favorite gentlemen, and scholars… Edgar Allan Poe.
