Brand On The Run! We love slinging BBQ for the good citizens of Logan Square and beyond at our restaurant, and NOW...we are taking our meat to the street. Chef Sweet Charity Smith adds a whole lot of personality and a little bit of gourmet flair to standard menu items as well as unique offerings.
Brand BBQ is a cozy, modern BYOB restaurant in the hippest neighborhood (in our humble opinion) in Chicago, Logan Square. We’ve been serving up our non-traditional take on BBQ since October, 2009. Our homey space is filled with the scent of smokers working round the clock in the kitchen, buzz-worthy fare like Burnt Ends and Turducken, and a staff that loves ‘Q as much as you. We put our own twist on classics like pork belly, pulled duck, mac ‘n cheese and even ice cream (there’s bacon in it!) As a result, we simply cannot identify with one specific region of BBQ as our influence, and like all the Greats throughout Food History, we are paving our own way.

Heritage Bicycles General Store
2959 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL.
A space where you can take a break with a cup of Stumptown coffee and watch our bike production happening in the back of the cafe. Heritage Bicycles are assembled on-site, available for sale and on display for a test drive! There is cafe seating available in our communal space. So sit back, enjoy a beverage and watch the bicycles being built. You can also grab a seat while your own bike is being tuned up or repaired. We are not leaving the non-coffee drinkers out in the cold either, the cafe will also include Brooklyn's P&H Natural Soda, Chicago's Southport Grocery pastries and small bites along with an assortment of teas and hot chocolate for Chicago's many winter nights.

Established in 2008, Koval is the first craft distillery within Chicago's city limits since Prohibition. We source all of our grains, fruits, herbs, and flowers from the surrounding Midwest region, and we make all of our spirits in house, entirely from scratch - from mashing to distilling, bottling to boxing.
Our founders, Robert and Sonat Birnecker, gave up academic careers to bring the distilling traditions of Robert's Austrian grandfather to America. They vowed to create a sustainable family business with high quality and organic products. Koval features small batch spirits distilled from 100% organic grain, avoiding the common industry practice of purchasing pre-made neutral grain spirit. Everything we make is certified organic and kosher, and we are darn proud of it.
We started with five single-grain white whiskeys: Rye, Oat, Wheat, Millet, and Spelt. In 2010, we debuted our aged whiskey, Lion's Pride, aged in two distinct styles. No artificial coloring, no chill filtering - only the pure heart cut of the distillate with beautiful amber hues from nothing but the barrel and time. Our lineup also includes several brandies and six liqueurs: Chrysanthemum Honey, Coffee, Ginger, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, and Rose Hip.
