NEIGHBORHOOD BAR SERVING BEER, WHISKEY, NATURAL WINE, COCKTAILS, FOOD, FUN
To the legendary Jerry’s regulars, yes, we will have a $3 neighborhood draft special. We’ll carry it, as long as it tastes good.Stuart MacKenzie, Owner
Breathing new life into Newport’s 80-year-old Jerry’s Jug House has been a passion project for cousins Mark Ramler and Stuart MacKenzie. They turned the back
gambling room “office” into a lounge and added cocktails, natural wines, craft drafts, and food from their family farm. Of course they had to keep cheap domestic beers and good bourbon. (Keeping with the jug house of yore, you can buy bottles of natural wine, beer, and liquor to go.) The flaked-ice libations include everything from housemade bourbon vanilla cokes to classic negronis.
Jerry’s goal is to stay authentic to its Jug House roots while adapting to modern trends–and be around as a neighborhood bar for another 80 years.
