Waffle Day poster
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25TH. You probably already knew this, but National Waffle Day is Wed, March 25th. We at Jerry’s take this, and all national food-related holidays, very seriously. Alongside the parades on every Main Street, fireworks displays and the raging bouts of Ultimate Waffle Food-Fighting Championships, Jerry’s is ready and willing to do our part to keep those enthusiastic bellies full.

We’re proud to announce the coming of the Jerry’s Fried Chicken and Waffle Sandwich! Our popular Southern Fried Chicken nuzzles up with maple-glazed Bacon, White Cheddar, house Bread & Butter Pickles, lettuce, and real Maple Syrup Aoli, and is nestled in a Beer-based Waffle bed and blanket. No National Waffle Day Party will be complete without it!

Make sure to leave room for dessert, in the form of a root beer chocolate chip waffle with custard and chocolate syrup. WAFFLE!!!

All About Hops poster
TUESDAY, MAY 19th, WICKER PARK. As part of our ongoing educational beer events, and in conjunction with Chicago Craft Beer Week, Jerry’s is excited to bring you “All About Hops”, a panel discussion with the best and most knowledgeable people to discuss hops we know. The focus for the night is our little friend who has a big impact on the beers we love, the Hop.  Our panel includes:
Jason Ebel – Owner/Master Brewer, Two Brothers Brewing Company (Warrenville, IL)
Jeremy Marshall – Head Brewer, Lagunitas Brewing Co (Petaluma, CA)
James Altweis – CEO, Gorst Valley Hops, (Mazomanie, WI)
Eric Hobbs – Co-Founder, Penrose Brewing, (Geneva, IL)
Moderator: Josh Noel, Travel & Beverage Writer for the Chicago Tribune

This is a FREE event; pay as you go for food and drinks. RSVP does NOT guarantee entry, so we recommend coming early. If you want to have dinner, we recommend coming even earlier so servers are not trying to talk over our distinguished panelists.

Free Beer?


Once again we know you, our fair weather friends, aren’t coming in. So make an appearance today or tomorrow (even colder) and we’ll buy you a glass of beer. Ok, not one of the super-expensive ones, but we’re negotiable and easy. And, yes, you have to buy a sandwich, cheapskate. Say the magic words “freakin’ freezin'”, or whatever.
