The Old Irving Park Beer and BBQ Challenge is Chicago’s ultimate craft beer and BBQ pairing competition presented by Tyson Foods and @ properties with Derek DiSera & Brett Huelat of the Park Place Group.

Check out the participating craft breweries for this year.


It’s simple.  We pair talented brewers & pitmasters from the local area to deliver the ultimate Beer and BBQ pairing.  You sample good local craft beer, taste some of the best BBQ in Chicago, and you vote on the best pairing of the two.
