What we're about

Calling all chess enthusiasts! Chess & Cheers aims to foster an increased interest and enjoyment of chess, all while sipping a few beers. The group will provide both an environment for experienced chess players to improve their abilities and an opportunity for newcomers to learn the game.

When we say "all skill levels are welcome", we mean it. Are you nationally ranked? Did you play a bit in high school? Are you new to the game but just want to get good enough to shut your annoying uncle up at Christmas? This meetup is for you!

Chess & Cheers at Yards Brewery

Needs a location

We're back at Yards Brewery for some more chess!
Couple of things to note:

  • We’re unable to reserve tables in advance, so there’s a chance the entire group may not be able to sit next to each other. The event hosts will try to get there early and claim as much space as possible.
  • The Taproom closes at 9pm , so any in-progress games will need to be wrapped up by then.
  • We will be following Covid guidelines as set by Yards Taproom, as applicable.
  • Please bring any spare boards / clocks if you can.

Additional Announcement: we're looking for more Chess & Cheers event hosts! If you're interested, please contact Renee, Dan, or Mike for more details.
