Great news! We will still have our annual cider buy with Brad Page and Colorado Cider Company this year! More details to come, but we expect the event to take place in late October/early November.
If you don’t know what a stein beer is, its a beer brewed using rocks heated in a fire to boil the wort. It’s been an annual event for the last few year with FOTR. The past few years’ stein beers were a great success, so we hope we can get even more people into the process this year. Naturally, we will be social distancing and wearing masks. Reach out the the club email for more details about the event. Some links about Stein Beers provided below. Please RSVP so we know how many people to expect.
This Saturday, 20 June 2020 is Iron Brewer.
We will be brewing onsite at The Brew Hut, starting at 9 AM. We will be following all social distancing guidelines, so please plan accordingly. Look for canopies / shelters near The Brew Hut’s south door.
Club members, check your emails for more details. Some will brewing at their home brewery.
Update: October 2020
There will be no in person meetings for the rest of 2020 due to the Coronavirus. We plan to have some sort of white elephant virtual event for the Holiday Party in December. More details to come through the club’s Google email distribution list.
Foam on the Range is shifting upcoming meetings starting with April’s club meeting to a virtual format to encourage social distancing in the fight against the virus. Details will be sent out through the club’s Google email distribution list.
We look forward to returning to normal gatherings and continue to plan events (and revise plans as necessary). Tentative upcoming events: Cinco De Mitcho, Iron Brewer, Bike Ride, Picnic and Rocky Mtn Homebrew Competition.
Our February meeting is this Wednesday, Feb. 5. If you participated in the Cider Buy last November, please bring your finished cider so we can sample them. Hope to see you there!
Tomorrow night, 8 January will be our first meeting of the year.
Everyone remember to bring your stein beers, and don’t forget your checkbooks for dues, it’s that time again. We will be having elections as well.
Looking forward to seeing all of you!

With the upcoming homebrew club insurance enrollment deadline on Sept. 1, 2019, I wanted to give you an overview of the club’s AHA membership status. All homebrew clubs are eligible to sign up for insurance, regardless of AHA membership within your club.
If 75% or more of Foam On The Range members are also AHA members, then the club will automatically receive a check fully reimbursing your $90 insurance premium payment. The AHA reimbursed over $5,000 to 41 clubs last year.
AHA Membership Affiliation (as of July 31, 2019):
· AHA members in Foam On The Range: 24
· 2018 club size (as reported to Wests Insurance): 24
· AHA Membership rate (based on 2018 club size): 100%

To reach 75% and qualify for free homebrew club insurance, we’ll need at least -6 additional club member(s) to join the AHA pending any change in the club’s size since last year.

Our July Foam on the Road is this Thursday, 7/18, at Joyride Brewing, 2501 Sheridan Boulevard, Edgewater, CO 80214. Dave Bergen is a former member of the club, and Joyride has a new rooftop deck that we want to check out.
Carl spoke to Dave this weekend and there will have two food trucks this Thursday. Also, there will be a farmers market going on in the area, so you might have to park a little farther away. Dave said he would try to be there when we arrive. He also noted that we should not have too much trouble getting a table on the roof for the start of the meeting at 6pm.
As always, the planning meeting starts at 6pm with the social hour at 7pm. Hope to see you there.
This Wednesday the 10th will be our next meeting. We will be recapping the clubs participation at NHC and the largest turnout for Iron Brewer in recent history.
As an added bonus, Jess and Ray will be bringing a sampling of beer from the trip to and from Providence.
See you all on Wednesday!
