Growing up in Montana, Jerry Wolfe remembers hearing 1970s country music, eating peanuts and seeing the glow of red lights as he went from bar to bar while his dad ran Keno games. His newest bar on Sacramento Street is modeled after those small-town country bars.

“I’ve embraced everything country, and this reminds me of the country bars when I’d follow my dad after school,” Wolfe said.

    What an ignorant comment; you don't have to be a redneck to love country music. This is the best bar in the county already! I, for one, am ecstatic!! :D

    Nicely done new business story that made the Whiskey Barrel Saloon an interesting place and one that this reader will likely be visiting.
    One interesting point I would like to have seen touched upon but wasn't is that if there has been a drinking establishment situated there for 103 years then what about 1920-1933 when Prohibition was in effect in this country? Was it boarded up? Become an ice cream parlor? Or was it Lodi's very own speakeasy?

    I am proud of Jerry for following his heart and his dream!!! Lodi was in need of something different, especially downtown. Im excited for him && his fellow employees.

    I guess all the rednecks will be happy, but I think this sucks. Just another sign of Lodi being a hick town.
