The World Brewers' Forum

The best GABF Thursday night party is without a doubt the World Brewer's Forum. The Keg Ran Out Club homebrew club has put on this event for the past 11 years, and this year makes a dirty dozen.

This year the WBF theme is "The Dirty Dozen: A Dozen Years of Brewing Excellence". The KROC members will be brewing 12 different styles of beer to serve at the event. My own contribution will be a California Common, which is sitting in secondary right now. New Belgium Brewing has also generously donated a keg of one of their sour beers.

The WBF will be held Thursday, September 28th from 8pm to midnight at the Hyatt Regency in Denver. There will be a silent auction and raffle, with proceeds going to benefit Barry Anderson, a club member who was seriously injured in a skiing accident in March. There will be tons of brewery schwag like T-shirts and hats plus gift certificates, homebrew equipment and other nice prizes and auction items. Barry's favorite recipe, a Toasted Coconut Porter, will also be served at the event.

The WBF will also feature two distinguished speakers: John Palmer, author of "How To Brew", and Sam Calagione, owner of Dogfish Head Brewey. Both of these guys are great speakers and are not to be missed.

Admission is FREE, but please RSVP to wbf@kroc.org. More information is also available on the club's website.
