The Glass Jug Beer Lab – Grilled Cheese Cook-Off This Saturday + New Beer & Events!


BEER RELEASE: Double Transparency

It seems like forever since we ran out of our last batch of Transparency! Well, the wait is over. We’re back with a new batch and this time we are turning it up a notch and making it a Double IPA!

Double Transparency is an 8.1% ABV DIPA that balances a bigger malt profile with an assertive hop presence. You’ll get more notes of honey and caramel in this version than in past iterations, and it’s balanced out by the use of Simcoe and Mosaic hops to create a grapefruit, mango, and piney hop profile that will keep you wanting more!
