The 19th annual KROC World Brewers Forum was held on Thursday, October 10th from 8pm - 12am at the Denver Marriott City Center. Our speakers this year are: Jeremy Cowan, owner and proprietor of Shmaltz Brewing and author of Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah, and Colin Kaminski, co-author of Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers and brewmaster at Downtown Joe's Brewery in Napa, California.
The theme this year was "19 Years and Still Going Strong!". We had 19+ homebrews on tap during the event, and a special keg of IIIPA from Brewery Rickoli's.
During the event, winners of the 7th Annual KROC Great American Beer Challenge will be announced, and awards will be given out.
A drawing and a silent auction was held during the event. Prizes up for grabs included gift certificates, glassware, t-shirts, growler fills, and more! You never know what's going to show up in our silent auction - previous years have included bags of grain, learn to homebrew kits, food tastings, beer for a year, and homebrew equipment.
