The Glass Jug Beer Lab – Beer Distribution Panel Tuesday, New Beer Release Wednesday, & Almanac Tap Takeover Thursday!


Beer Distribution Panel Discussion Tuesday!


Last week’s beer, Lemniscate, is still on draft and is drinking really nice. The bright, crisp, low-alcohol American Wheat ale makes an excellent warm weather beer.

But, if you’re looking for something on the darker side of the beer spectrum, you are in luck this week!

On Wednesday, we will be releasing our first Standard Deviation imperial stout. This version uses cocoa nibs and pure chocolate extract to create a big cocoa aroma and flavor that is balanced out perfectly by the roasted malts that provide hints of coffee and toast.

Standard Deviation: Chocolate will be available on draft and in crowlers starting on Wednesday!

Mark Your Calendars!

We have several awesome events coming up where we are either hosting or serving beer. We’d love for you to join us at any/all of the following:

Wild Card Brew-Off

Saturday, May 5th, The Frontier RTP

What better way to kick off the first ever Triangle Craft Beer Week than with a beer competition!? Each brewery (including The Glass Jug Beer Lab) has selected, at random, a unique pair of ingredients to brew a beer with. You then get to sample them all and help determine who has the most creative (and tastiest) beer! The event is also Vegas-themed, so there will be Vegas-style games including craps, roulette, and black jack (all raising money to provide scholarship and education opportunities for triangle area brewers). There will also be a DJ and food trucks!

Triangle Craft Beer Fest

Saturday, May 12th, WakeMed Soccer Park (Cary)
Show your NC pride by coming to the ONLY beer fest featuring exclusively Triangle-area breweries! Triangle Craft Beer Fest will be highlighting all your favorite local breweries (including The Glass Jug Beer Lab) in one place, and each brewery will be pouring a special one-off beer you won’t be able to get anywhere else! Enjoy live music, chow down with food trucks and shop local vendors!
