Olvisholt – Lava (What?!?! A European beer at Jerry’s?!?! Well sort of. Culturally, we’d certainly consider Iceland a European country. We doubt that Bjork eats much apple pie. But let’s talk geography. Tectonically, about half of Iceland sits on the North American plate. Which makes it at least an honorary member of the North American continent. And speaking of Bjork, she seemed pretty frustrated when her Pitchfork set was cut short by Chicago summer thunderstorms, so perhaps we can help heal that wound by tapping a delicious beer from her home country. And, as if we needed more connections, our beloved DJ Grimsborg, the brains behind the film and the music for Dark Harvest, takes his name from the mountain Grimsbørg of Icelandic folklore. In other words, we like Iceland, and we’re taking it.)

TUES, SEPTEMBER 24th – BOTH ANDERSONVILLE & WICKER PARK
Whiskey, we think, needs no introduction. Taste a slew of contemporary American whiskeys and the the men and women behind the magic. Tunes spinning all night long with drink specials behind the bar.
This event is happening at BOTH Wicker Park AND Andersonville locations, with different distillers at each. Distillers TBA soon.
This is a Chicago Craft Spirits Week event.

WICKER PARK, SEPT 4th, 7pm. Bell’s Oracle is an extremely limited and rare beer, but the wisdom that it holds is worth every bit of the trials and tribulations required to obtain it. Or you could just skip the whole trials and tribulations bit, and come by Jerry’s for a couple of delicious beers.
The tap List:
Bell’s Oracle 2IPA (at 7 pm sharp)
Bell’s Best Brown Ale (fall seasonal release party)
Bell’s Two Hearted
In addition to these, we’ll have our usual array of bottles from Kalamazoo’s finest: Bell’s Amber, Lager of the Lakes, Kalamazoo Stout, Two Hearted, and Midwest Pale Ale. Bell’s own Monica Mooney will be on hand for the party. So feel free to say hi, raise a glass with her, and discuss all things Bell’s.
