About Us

In July of 1994 a group of men and women came together for the purpose of forming a home-brew beer making club. Zymurgists (one who uses a scientific application of fermentation for making beer) can smell a good beer from miles around so membership in the club began to grow rapidly in Central Kentucky. It became evident that the club needed to elect officers, collect dues, and schedule meetings for its' members. Brewers Of Central Kentucky (B.O.C.K.) meet each month to share ideas regarding brewing processes, recipes, and other information pertinent to the making of excellent beer. It makes no difference what level of zymurgist you are - a novice, (never made beer before but like drinking good beer and have a desire to learn) or a Picasso of the brewing world, you will be welcome to attend a regular monthly meeting and meet others who are just like you. The age group of our members varies just like the home-brew each one makes. If you are from twenty-one to over sixty you'll find someone your age because here the love of beer and beer making is the common thread which binds this group.

There are many advantage to being a member. Here are just a few:

•10% off Brewing Related Equipment at Liquor Barn and Lexington Beerworks
