The Glass Jug features over 500 beers, wines, ciders, meads, kombucha, and sodas in bottles and cans, including a large selection of local, rare, and limited-release offerings from around the country and the world.
Choose any beer or cider from the draft list and have your growler filled using counter-pressure technology to ensure freshness, stable carbonation, and a longer shelf life for your favorite craft beer or cider.
Our state-of-the-art craft beer bar features 24 draft options, including two ciders, nitro beer, three rotating sour beer taps, nitro cold brew coffee, a non-alcoholic option, in addition to four of our own house-brewed beers. Wine and mead are also offered by the glass.
This month, we're featuring a rotating selection of beer from Bond Brothers from Cary, NC. These guys are pumping out some delicious brews and we had them over to brew a collaboration beer, "Donut Touch My Coffee," that is on draft this month. We're also keeping a rotating selection of their beer on tap all month!
One thing we love doing over here at the Beer Lab is experimenting with fun ingredients and unique processes. This has led us to create beers with tomatillos, candy cap mushrooms, donuts, basil, and all sorts of fruit.
However, that same curiosity that leads us to try new and trendy styles and ingredients can also provide a desire to recreate historic styles using old world brewing methods and ingredients.
We just announced the 4th iteration of our annual sour and wild beer festival with our friends at Sam's Bottle Shop and we are pretty excited about this year's event (which is happening on June 22nd and 23rd)!
Why are we excited, you ask?
For starters, we'll be releasing a new beer that will debut at the event. And, not just any beer. This is the beer that was brewed with Eric Boren, the winner of last fall's barrel-aged homebrew competition. "Brett on the Beach" is the sister beer to our recently-released "Brett in the Wood." It's a 100% brett-fermented saison that has been dry-hopped and aged in a rum barrel from Fair Game Beverage in Pittsboro.
The Glass Jug Beer Lab, the Triangle's newest craft brewery, has begun brewing beer and will be releasing their first brews at a grand opening party, slated for March 31st, 2018. Look out for food trucks, live music, and of course, delicious small-batch craft beer!
