A 5-Day Celebration to Commemorate 5 Years

It seems a bit surreal at times, but 2019 marks five years since we opened our doors at The Glass Jug. It’s humbling to look back on all of the changes that have happened and all of the people who have walked through our doors over the last five years. While it may seem cheesy, we think that five years is worthy of a big celebration. So, we’re doing something (a lot of somethings) we haven’t ever done before. We’re going to be celebrating our 5-year anniversary over the course of five days from September 17 - September 21, 2019. Below, we’ve outlined all of the various festivities.

First Ever Can Release & Summer Fest Celebration

We’ve all heard of Oktoberfest, but this year, as part of our year-long 5-year Anniversary celebration, we’re also going to have a Summer Fest because…well, who says you can only throw a big beer drinking party in the fall!?

Mark your calendars for May 18th and make your way to The Glass Jug Beer Lab for an all-day celebration of great beer, rockin’ tunes, and delicious food. There will be plenty of fun and games for the whole family throughout the afternoon.

Glass Jug Announces 4-Year Anniversary & Oktoberfest Celebration

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.

Glass Jug Launches "Temporal Displacement" Series with Mr. Barry's Good Ale

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.

2-Day Wild & Sour Beer Event Returns to Durham

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.
