You haven't tasted "farm fresh" until you've come to the Pints & Pork BBQ Challenge. Every team will prepare pork from an Illinois farm. As you visit each team's booth and sample their craft beer and BBQ, you, too, will be challenged when deciding how to vote.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Pints and Pork Challenge has been cancelled. We hope to host the event in 2021. Thanks for all your support & stay safe and healthy!
Conveniently located on Route 52 south of I-80, you will find this charming agricultural community a welcoming place to spend an afternoon. With free parking, you will be enjoying Chicagoland's best craft beers and BBQ with grass under your feet surrounded by amber grains. This historical church celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2015.
If there is one thing that South Siders do very well, it's brew beer. Finding the perfect pint begins right here. The Pints & Pork Challenge gathers the best cutting-edge craft brewers around, guaranteeing you will enjoy your afternoon at St. Joseph Parish!
