The Glass Jug Beer Lab – Opacity is back + Cider & Cheese Pairing & Parkwood SummerFest!

BEER RELEASE: Cryo Opacity Hazy IPA

It seems we have a few fans of our Opacity hazy IPAs. Thus, we brewed up a big double-batch of the newest release, which will be on draft this Wednesday!

This version is made with new “cryo” hops, which give us twice the amount of alpha acids and essential oils compared to regular hops, allowing us to get a ton of hop flavor with only about half as many hops. This version, specifically, uses Citra, Mosaic, and Columbus cryo hops to give a great citrus and grapefruit aroma and flavor.

The weather is looking good for this week’s Beer Garden Jam Session, our new music series happening 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!

Join us this week for our next songwriter open mic event. Feel free to bring extra chairs, blankets, etc. and hang out in the beer garden with us!
