CHAOS, the Chicago Homebrew Alchemists of Suds, is a coalition of home-brewers, beer aficionados, and enthusiasts in the Chicago, IL area that strives to cultivate appreciation of the science and culture of beer through education, exploration, and community. As a club, CHAOS is unique in that it also offers a permanent space that allows members the ability to hone their craft in a community setting. Tune in to learn about this fascinating project from its president, Ken Getty. Mary Izett hats with Ken on this episode of Fuhmentaboudit! about the homebrewing community, the challenges of brewing in small spaces and the evolution of CHAOS. This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"It's very difficult to homebrew in an apartment. The idea behind [CHAOS Brew Club ] was to find a space, keep the equipment in one location. That idea grew like wildfire and in 7 months we went from a small basement under an art studio to renting out a 900 square foot space which became a 1300 sq foot space. We are the first and really only communal brew space model." [05:00]

Grab a beer and enjoy another jam-packed episode of Beer Sessions Radio! This week - Jimmy and the crew are checking in on the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp! This summer, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is inviting every craft brewery in the country (count ‘em: more than 2,700) along for Beer Camp Across America, the largest collaboration the craft brewing world has ever seen. Beer Camp Across America is a multi-weekend path of beer festivals, a rolling tour that will cover 4,800 miles, celebrating the collaborative spirit of the craft brewing community with the fans that have buoyed its success. There’ll be seven stops—in cities with thriving craft beer cultures—moving geographically west to east, much like the craft movement has historically spread. Tune in and hear from some of the brewers involved as Jimmy tastes through the collection on-air! This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

"The market for [these collaborative beers] is anybody who's adventurous as the brewers themselves - people looking for something off the beaten path." [12:00]

"We would like to be able to design a kilm that would be capable of making brown malt on a commercial basis." [32:00]

"We call it base malt - but it doesn't have to be base malt. The character of your beer doesn't have to come from specialties or hops - dare I say that." [36:00]
