Tell me more about KROC!
KROC was founded in 1994 by a small group of Broomfield-area homebrewers who decided to move from an informal band of brewers to a slightly better organized group. The name of the club comes from a late night debate over some homebrews which ended when the keg ran out of beer. At that point, two of the original members, Tim Suttman and John Irwin, looked at each other and said "The Keg Ran Out Club!", and the name stuck.
Founded as a casual, social group of homebrewers, the same spirit remains today, but we're branching out to help educate our club members on the state of the art in brewing and beer.

What is a brew-in?
A brew-in is an event where a club member opens up one of their brew days to all current and future club members. The brewer will strive to demonstrate a technique discussed in meetings, since sometimes it's easier to learn by doing.
What is a Kruise?
An occasional get together where club members can meet up and socialize, while checking out local breweries. The Denver metro area is home to many great breweries, with new ones arriving every few months.
What should I expect at a meeting?
KROC meetings are pretty laid back. People bring some of their home brew and perhaps a rarity from the cellar to share. Food is available for purchase.
At the end of the meeting, we all help clean up to leave the place even cleaner than we found it so that we're welcome back next month.
How do I become a member?
Come join us at a meeting and see what we are all about. If you have any other questions or would like current month meeting location information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
