The Glass Jug Beer Lab – Triple C Tasting Tuesday, Disco Party & Revision IPA Tap Takeover Thursday

#ncbeer strong.


As you may have seen, last Thursday we did a small test run of about 20 crowlers of our beers. Apologies for not giving you all a heads-up ahead of time. It was more of a test run than anything, so we didn’t want to put too much hype behind it, in case they didn’t work out.

However, we are planning to start doing weekly crowler releases every Tuesday or Wednesday starting next week on Wednesday, 4/18, when we release Lemniscate, a brand new American Wheat that features Centennial and Motueka hops. Look for more details in next week’s email newsletter!

Pints for Paws

Join us at the first annual Pints for Paws craft beverage event, sample a selection of local beverages from Durham-based craft brewers (including The Glass Jug Beer Lab) and have a great time while benefiting Animal Protection Society of Durham. Meet the local craft brewers and staff while you sample a wide mix of unique brews. Enjoy live music, local food trucks, and bring your crowd-friendly dogs (on leash of course!) to this unique family-friendly event. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Animal Protection Society of Durham to care for animals in need. This event promises to find the intersection of craft beverage and animal lovers.

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!
