Default Chicago homebrew clubs

I'm moving to Chicago in a couple weeks. I'll be in uptown/ Sheridan Park.

I found the Square Kegs Homebrew Club in Ravenswood. Are there any other clubs I should check out?

As far as I know, we're the only club in town with a dedicated brewhouse complete with a temperature controlled fermentation room and many other awesome things!

This looks really cool. Where is the brew house?

It may be further than you want to drive, but the Urban Knaves of Grain (http://www.knaves.org/) is located in the west suburbs.

Details on on the website, but their regular meetings are at the Rock Bottom in Warrenville, just off of I-88. They also hold monthly "tech sessions" at another local establishment and monthly outings/events/activities (pub crawls, group brewing sessions, summer picnic, etc.). They are a fairly large group, with a wide range of experience levels.
