Are there any brewing organizations or brewing clubs in Chicago or Northwest Indiana that anyone knows about?

Try this

I think BOSS might work for you. And of course, there is the ultra-exclusive secret society knows only as SNIZZLE

rdwj,
can you elaborate on SNIZZLE.
Not that I would be accepted, just curious.

If he told you, it would no longer be a secret society. Heck, I'm a member and I don't know much about it.

SNIZZLE should be showing up in the BeerTown club links sooner of later.

First rule of SNIZZLE: DO NOT LET WISONSONERS IN SNIZZLE!
Second Rule: see Rule 1
Third Rule: If it's your first SNIZZLEFEST, you gotta drink.

It's just a few of us on this board that meet up here and there to do some brewing and drinking, but super secret society sounds much cooler. Our membership requirements are pretty extreme - you have to be able to put up with us.
