About Brother John's

Brother John’s Beer, Bourbon & BBQ is a fun, family‐friendly and unique destination restaurant as the first Bavarian‐inspired beer garden, bourbon bar and barbecue concepts in Arizona. Customers receive a comfort food dining experience with a selection of true slow‐smoked meats, southern‐style sides with a southwestern kick, salads and desserts, all containing thoughtfully local sourced ingredients. In addition to offering classes, tastings and regular food and beverage parings, Brother John’s also hosts a weekly live music series catering to all demographics.

True Southern-Style BBQ

Brother John’s invites you for lunch, social hour, dinner and late night happy hour! We offer authentic slow pit-smoked barbecue meats and comfort food prepared on-site daily, fusing traditional southern-style barbecue with southwestern and Latin flavors, including incorporating a selection of regional chili peppers. The pit master slow smokes the highest quality meats in-house over Hickory, Applewood and Mesquite for up to 16 hours. If there is a pink ring around your meat, don’t fret. The pinkness is a result of Brother John’s long, low and slow smoking process. Highlights of the menu include:

  • a mix of traditional barbecue techniques
  • barbecue favorites such as Texas-style salt and pepper dry-rubbed brisket, whole “Bam Bam” style short-ribs, dry rubbed and locally sourced pulled pork shoulder, and baby back and St. Louis ribs
  • in-house smoked pork belly, brisket, chicken, and prime rib
  • other comfort food, burgers, three-day southern fried chicken (a house specialty), and salads
  • desserts such as lightly sugared beignets with bourbon caramel dipping sauce and freshly baked brownies topped with local The Screamery (thescreamery.com) organic hand crafted ice cream
