Word of the Day - Gambrinus

This comes from

Word of the Day for Tuesday, December 28, 2010
gambrinus \gam-BRAHY-nuhs\, noun:
A mythical Flemish king, the reputed inventor of beer. 

I would have suspected them to capitalize the first letter.  I've heard of St. Arnold, but never Gambrinus, it's always fun to learn more beer trivia.

"It is also possible that the original Gambrinus was Duke John I of Brabant (1254-1298), who was called Jan Primus."
Could this be the origin of Primary Fermenter?
