Old Irving Park Beer & BBQ Challenge

Chicago’s Old Irving Park neighborhood is hosting its 6th annual Old Irving Park Beer & BBQ Challenge in the St. Viator campus lot located at 3644 N, Kedvale Avenue. The event has raised over $110,000 so far benefiting student programs, facilities, and athletics at St. Viator School & Parish. Tickets start at $65 and are available at www.beerbbqchallenge.com.

The showdown will feature 20 pit-master and local craft brewer teams who will present unique BBQ pork and beer pairings for attendees to sample and then vote for their favorites. This year, teams will also compete for votes from expert judges like pit master and restauranteur Barry Sorkin of Smoque BBQ, chef and restauranteur Lisa Fosler Kelly, and craft beer pairing expert Jennifer Brechner of Brooklyn Brewery.

Attendees and judges will cast their votes across 40 beer samples and 20 BBQ tastings for the best beer, BBQ, and beer & BBQ pairing!
