The Urban Knaves of Grain (UKG) are the oldest and largest homebrew club in DuPage County, Illinois.
We are dedicated to the art of brewing great beer, mead, and cider at home.
We offer a variety of activities and resources for homebrewers at all levels, from beginner to experienced, not to
mention just plain fun stuff. Workshops, picnics, outings, competitions, meetings, pub crawls, brew-ins...even a
song...we have them all.
Our Club Motto: "UKG... Because home is where great beer is brewed!"
In 1999, we were co-winners of the American
Homebrewers Association's Homebrew Club of the Year award. This award is presented every year to the homebrew
club whose members score the most points in the AHA's National Homebrew Competition — the largest homebrew
competition in the world — and in AHA Club-Only Competitions throughout the year.
Our very own homebrew competition, the Drunk Monk Challenge,
is held every year in March. Each year it attracts around 800 entries from all over the country,
making it one of the largest competitions in the USA. Check out the
Drunk Monk Challenge 2014 winners here.
