Formed in 1992, Club Wort is a 50+ member homebrew club based in the northwest suburbs (Palatine, IL) of Chicago. We dedicate ourselves to the enhancement of the brewing process, the moderate consumption of fine ales and lagers, and the enlightenment of the masses.


Club Wort serves as a social club and activity center. Among our many events, we have bi-annual pub crawls, an annual picnic, club brew-ins, a book club, and monthly meetings.
