Barrel Aging and Blending Program

We also have a barrel aging program, where groups of members get together to learn about and try aging and blending of beers.

Classes and Education

CHAOS has ongoing classes ranging from our monthly beer style education and BJCP judging, to other odd topics such as stir plates, cider, and meadmaking.

Quarterly Member Parties

Our quarterly private events feature the homebrew of our members and allow everyone to showcase their recent creations while meeting and hanging out with other beer aficionados.
