The Glass Jug Beer Lab – Two New Beers, Foothills & Durty Bull Events, & Live Music on Saturday!

This rain can’t slow us down!


Now that we have our latest iteration of Opacity on tap, we’re following that up with the second iteration of Transparency. This version is called “Modern Transparency,” as it takes the classic West Coast IPA and implements some of the flavors and techniques used with the more modern New England IPAs, while still maintaining it’s assertive bitterness and clear appearance (no haze, bro). It features Mosaic and Citra hops and clocks in at 6.5% ABV.

Simultaneously, we’re releasing a small batch of “Brett in the Wood,” the first in a two-part series of barrel-aged wild fermented saisons. This version was fermented with Brettanomyces, then aged in fresh American oak barrels before being dry-hopped with Mosaic and Amarillo hops to create a complex, multi-layered saison that hits you with oak, funk, and fruit all at once. Look for the rum barrel-aged sister beer, “Brett on the Beach,” to be released later this summer!

We’re excited to announce our new “Beer Garden Jam Sessions,” a music series that started up last Saturday (despite the rain), and will continue every Saturday this spring and summer from 4-7pm in the beer garden (or in the Atrium if the weather does not cooperate).

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!
