Pencil This In: A Sour Xmas At Jerry's Wicker Park

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Dec 23, 2014 6:30PM


The holiday travel season is in full swing which means there should be seats at the bar at Jerry's Wicker Park tonight for "Bah Humbug: A Sour Xmas" starting 6 p.m. tonight. Sour beers and holiday brews will be on the agenda with the following lineup:

The Bruery's Oude Tart and Tart of Darkness
Jolly Pumpkin/Upland's Persimmon Ship collaborative beer
Great Lakes Christmas Ale
Three Floyds Alpha Klaus
Evil Twin Christmas Eve At A NYC Hotel Room
Port Brewing Santa's Little Helper
Lost Abbey Merry Taj

Holiday themed movies will screen, as well, starting with the family-friendly National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation at 6 p.m., Gremlins at 7:45 p.m.; Saint Nick at 9:30 p.m. and Black X-Mas at 11 p.m. Beer and movies are something we could be doing at home, but it's much better to get out and about.
