The Glass Jug Beer Lab – GRAND OPENING THIS WEEKEND!

We’ll see you on Saturday!

Updates from The Jug

We’ll be pouring our first FIVE beers brewed at The Jug as part of our GRAND OPENING PARTY this Saturday, March 31st. It’ll be a big day with great beer, live music (2-6pm), and food (12-2pm & 5-8pm). We hope you will join us for the festivities. All beer on draft will be the same price ($5/pour) and we’ll be utilizing a beer ticket system to keep the lines moving as quickly as possible. We will, unfortunately, not be filling growlers or serving flights during the event.

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!

Brewery of the Month:
Four Saints Brewing

This is our last week with Four Saints Brewing as our Brewery of the Month. Be sure to stop by and try some of the awesome Four Saints beer that is on draft now.

Next month is NC Beer Month, so we’re putting an emphasis on all North Carolina breweries! We’re kicking things off with an NC Beer tap takeover along with the release of Transparency 1, the first in our series of West Coast-inspired IPAs.

Beer of the Week:
Sixpoint – Alpenflo

Some beers are easy to make and difficult to drink… but ALPENFLO is the opposite on both counts. It took years to acquire the materials and formula for Alpenflo—we’re talking all-malt, 100% 2-row barley, and we source all of the hops directly from family farms in Bavaria to give it that gentle spice. This lager is then cold-stored in horizontal lagering tanks to round out the flavor profile. Once opened, that frothy beverage is gone in a flash.

12 oz cans, 4.9% ABV, $8.49 6-packs
