We are dedicated  to the art of crafting and quaffing fine beers through
 the sharing of ideas and experiences, the advocacy of brewing as a hobby and the responsible consumption of beverages containing alcohol


BOSS is a club of home brewing hobbyists. Our meetings are held once a month in club member's homes or at local brewpubs around the Southwest Chicago Suburbs. We have members from Joliet to Crown Point, from Hyde Park to Kankakee. 

In addition, we host an annual homebrew competition in the Spring, an club picnic in September, and a holiday party in December.

We also have a mailing list where members share their knowledge of various brewing techniques and their enthusiasm for the craft. Everyone is welcome. You do not need to be a member of BOSS to join the mailing list. To subscribe to the mailing list, send an email to BossBeer+subscribe@googlegroups.com

If you have never brewed beer, but are interested in learning how, or if you have been brewing for years, consider joining our club. Our membership ranges in experiences from beginning brewers to commercial microbrewers. All levels of experiences are welcome. We also welcome others who have an interest in brewing and quality beer.

Several Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) and American Homebrewer's Association (AHA) certified beer judges are active members and are available for direct feedback on your homebrew creations. We also have members who are authors of home brewing books, periodicals, and other published works.

Brewers of South Suburbia is an Illinois not-for-profit corporation.
