The Glass Jug Beer Lab – Opacity Returns This Week + Beer Garden Jam Session This Saturday!

Free wine tasting on Thursday!

BEER RELEASE: Southern Hemisphere Opacity

Opacity 1 was one of our fastest-selling beers since we started brewing. So fast, in fact, that we’ve been sold out for a couple of weeks while we awaited the next batch of Opacity to arrive.

Well, your wait is over! On WEDNESDAY this week, we’ll be releasing Southern Hemisphere Opacity, the newest iteration in our hazy IPA series features hops from…you guessed it…the southern hemisphere. Packed with Galaxy and Motueka hops, this beer brings a ton of fresh orange and citrus aroma on top of a soft, smooth body with low bitterness.

We will be releasing draft and a limited number of crowlers on Wednesday.

We’re excited to announce our new “Beer Garden Jam Sessions,” a music series that will begin this Saturday, May 19th, and will continue 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!

Our first singer/songwriter open mic night will be on May 19th. We’ve booked String Beings, an awesome bluegrass band, for June 2nd. And, we’ll be featuring Mysti Mayham on July 7th!
