Our popular Craft Beer Advent Calendars are back for 2018 and better than ever! We’ve got a new box design and TWO Glass Jug collaboration beers going into this year’s calendar. Get all the details and don’t let this holiday classic pass you by!
The Glass Jug Beer Lab has a lot to celebrate as they wrap up their fourth full year in business. This year has seen the launch of a rebrand, a move into a bigger space, and the addition of an on-site brewery and beer garden.
To commemorate the occasion, The Jug is hosting an Oktoberfest-themed celebration all day on Saturday, September 15, 2018. The party is complete with live music, food trucks, and lots of great limited-release and small-batch brews from The Glass Jug.
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!
Our final construction update and a few favorite memories from Suite AF, as we say goodbye to our original location when we close the doors today.
Huston, we have a brewery! The brewhouse and tanks were delivered this week, and things are really starting to look like a real brewery over here.
With the opening of the brewery in our new location, we're also adjusitng our hours to make it more convenient for everyone.
Mother Nature tried to slow us down with a big snow storm, but our crews have been working hard to keep us on schedule. Floors are finished, the beer garden is taking shape, the new ceiling grid is in place, and we have a big shiny new sign!
Things are happening! Sometimes, I forget how much has happened since we last posted photos because we're spending so much time in the new space that each change seems so small and insignificant. Then, when I look back at where we were just a few weeks ago, I realize how quickly it is all coming together.
