Fire Water BBQ & Brew was born in 1871 as a result of tragedy, and experimentation in the pursuit of the best BBQ possible. The original men were well aware that the best BBQ came North from the Southern states, just after the civil war. They knew that theirs would have to be exceptional to be remembered. Hence, was born a process often imitated, but never duplicated. The meat its self had to meet specific requirements, the cooking equipment had to be specially designed and the length of the hickory smoking process had to be determined. Lastly, the combination of ingredients to create the worlds best BBQ sauces had to compliment the unique flavors of the meat. They accomplished what they set out to do, and we can prove it! If you are a BBQ lover put Fire Water BBQ & Brew on your to do list.

The flavors, traditions and hospitality of Southern style BBQ perfected in the windy city. We provide dine-in, carry out and catering options.
