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!

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.
