It’s the most wonderful time for a beer.

Updates from The Jug

A big THANK YOU to everyone who ordered a Beer Advent Calendar last week (almost 200 of you)! We were a bit floored by the response, but are looking forward to getting them all packed up for you and we think you’re going to be excited about the beers we have selected!

If you weren’t able to get one of our pre-made calendars, just stop by sometime and have a bartender help you put one together at the store. We can work with any budget and any beer style preferences.

Brewery of the Month:
Olde Hickory Brewery

This month, we’re excited to be partnering with Olde Hickory as our November NC Brewery of the Month. Their barrel-aging program is one of the best around and November is when both Event Horizon and Lindley Park are released, two delicious bourbon barrel-aged imperial stouts. We’ll be rolling through a variety of Olde Hickory beer all month long, so be sure to swing by and check it out!

Beer of the Week:
Stone, Xocoveza

I know we said that we were only getting a single delivery this year, but luckily for you, we were wrong! Stone sent a second truck down to the triangle, so we have one more round of Xocoveza for the season. Get some before it’s gone!

If you haven’t tried Xocoveza yet, you are missing out. This is Stone’s Mexican hot chocolate stout brewed w/ cocoa, coffee, chili peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and it is truly fantastic!

12 oz bottles, 8.1% ABV, $15.90 6-packs ($2.65 each)
