The Glass Jug Beer Lab – A Lot is Happening at The Jug for Triangle Craft Beer Week!

It’s Triangle Craft Beer Week!

Triangle Craft Beer Week!

We have a lot on the calendar this week for Triangle Craft Beer Week! First, instead of waiting until Wednesday to release our new beer this week, we’re tapping it TODAY!

We’re releasing the newest sour in our Pi series. This one is a gose with tomatillos, lemon basil, and sea salt. It was made specifically to be featured during Triangle Craft Beer Week and it debuted last Saturday at the Wild Card Brew-Off.

We’ll have draft of the beer available all week and a limited number of crowlers will be available starting on Wednesday. You can also catch this beer and Lemniscate at the Triangle Craft Beer Fest this Saturday at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary. Use the link below for tickets and the discount code “ncbeer” to get $5 off!

Thursday, we’re hosting a tap takeover featuring beer brewed by some of the organizers and leaders from the Triangle Craft Beer Alliance. This group is the driving force behind Triangle Craft Beer Week, the Wild Card Brew-Off, Triangle Craft Beer Fest, and many upcoming educational events with a focus on providing scholarships and educational opportunities to brewers and those new to the craft beer industry. Tandoor Indian Restaurant will be on site serving up some of their delicious Indian rolls for $5!

Additionally, we’re hosting a sour beer educational event with Bond Brothers TONIGHT. There are only a few tickets left for the 7:30pm session (6pm is sold out), so buy your ticket now if you would like to join us!

We’re excited to announce our new “Beer Garden Jam Sessions,” a music series that will begin on Saturday, May 19th, and will continue every Saturday this spring and summer from 4-7pm in the beer garden.

Each Saturday, we’ll set up a stage and sound system. The first Saturday of each month will feature some of our favorite local bands, while the other Saturdays will be a singer/songwriter open mic event. A great chance to hear some up-and-coming talent or for you to join us for a great jam session!
