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!? That, and we’ll be releasing three of our beers in cans for the first time, ever!
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.
To commemorate the occasion, we will be releasing three beers in 16oz cans. Be sure to snag a 4-pack of How Do You Say Opacity, Retro Transparency, and Summer Zest, a special one-off batch brewed just for the Summer Fest event. We’ll be posting details and a sneak peek at the awesome can artwork in the coming weeks, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay in the loop.
The doors will open at noon and all three of the new beers will be available on draft and in 16oz cans, while supplies last. We will only be packaging a total of 30 cases of each beer, so we are limiting everyone to a max of one case per person. Note that the limits may change as we get closer and have a better idea of demand and actual yield from the batch.
Baguettaboutit food truck will be parked in the beer garden from noon until 4pm serving up their amazing stuffed baguettes. And, stick around for dinner because Arepa Culture will be in the beer garden from 5-9pm with a delicious menu of arepas (all gluten free).
Oak City Underground will be taking the stage in the beer garden at 2pm, where they’ll be putting everyone in a great mood with their rocking tunes until 5pm. Then, Cosmic Superheros will take us into the evening from 6-9pm to keep the party jumping.
If you’re looking for some fun games while you enjoy your beer, food, and music, the disc golf baskets and corn hole boards will be out for free play all day, so get in on a game or start a pick-up tournament.
You can also enter a grain sack race for a chance to win a limited-edition Glass Jug 5-Year Anniversary tulip glass. The first heat will go off at 5pm. Then, grab a partner and enter the water balloon toss, which will begin at 5:30pm. The winning balloon tossers will take home a 32oz growler and growler koozie to keep it cold.
Bring some sunscreen and a lawn chair and make plans to hang in the beer garden all day for what is sure to be a great event. RSVP to the Facebook event to get all of the details and to stay up-to-date as we get closer to the party.
