Our Beer

Our beer is an ever-changing selection of seasonal, one-off, and small-batch beers that feature unique and local ingredients, new brewing processes, and cater to the tastes of our neighborhood.

 

Rotating Year-Round Series

Opacity (1).jpg

Opacity series

Opacity is the name of our series of hazy New England-Style IPAs. Look for different versions of Opacity that feature new hops, fruit additions, and other adjustments. The thing they all have in common is a soft mouthfeel, big hop flavors and aromas, and the prototypical haziness due to the use of wheat and/or oats and hopping during active fermentation.

Transparency Series

Our second series of IPAs will be more recognizable to the IPA purists. Pale straw to light copper in color, and lacking the haze of the Opacity series, these IPAs will draw from the roots of West Coast IPAs, providing a light crisp body and more assertive bitterness, while retaining a ton of hop flavor and aroma. Variations of Transparency will also utilize fruits, various hops and hopping techniques, and other process adjustments to create a variety of hop-forward beers.

Pi Series

All of the beers in the Pi series start with a Germain Berliner Weisse base beer. Light and tart, these beers utilize pilsner and wheat malt, are lightly hopped, and, through the use of lactobacillus, create a tart and refreshing beer. Each Pi series beer then sees additions of fruits, herbs, spices, or dry-hops to create a unique, one-of-a-kind flavor experience. Expect these beers to feature seasonally-available ingredients throughout the year.

Binomial Series

All beers in the Binomial series will feature a single grain and a single hop. Most will be low-alcohol IPAs, but some may push the style a bit in an effort to best showcase the unique characteristics of the selected malt and hop.

Standard Deviation Series

This is our line of imperial stouts that highlight the use of barrel aging and adjuncts. We use oak, chocolate, coffee, hazlenut, and other natural flavors to complement the nuances present in a complex imperial stout base. Look for fresh and aged versions of this series to hit the taps only a few times a year.

Temporal Displacement Series

This series features recreations of historical beers from different periods in time and from various regions of the world. All of thee beers are based on research done by beer historians. While we want to be historically accurate, we are also taking a few creative liberties to craft a beer that is both reflective of what was consumed at the time but is also enjoyable to the modern palate.

Wood Aged Wild & Sour Beers

Brett on the Beach & Brett in the Wood

These sister beers stemmed from the same original base beer - a saison with rye and oats that was fermented exclusively with Brettanomyces. One half was then aged in fresh American oak barrels (Brett in the Wood), while the other half was aged in a Fair Game Beverage Company Amber Rum barrel (Brett on the Beach).

 

One-Off Specialty Batches

Donut Touch My Coffee

A collaboration beer brewed at The Glass Jug with the team from Bond Brothers. This beer has 19 dozen donuts from Duck Donuts in the mash, plus additions of coffee, vanilla, lactose, and cinamon, making for a complex blond ale that tastes sweeter and darker than it looks.

I'm Wit Clint

A traditional Belgian Witbier brewed with coriander, sweet orange peel, and bitter orange peel to create a smooth, balanced, and refreshing summer beer. This one was brewed alongside our longtime bartender and friend, Clint Eaker. We'd much much rather be wit Clint than witout him!

Lemniscate

Lemniscate is the symbol used to indicate "infinity." It is also the name of our super refreshing spring American Wheat Ale that you could drink over and over again. This slightly hazy, highly carbonated, straw-colored ale has a soft mouthfeel and creamy texture due to the use of wheat. It is then generously hopped with Centennial and Motueka hops which provide a subtle balancing bitterness and a bright zesty lemon aroma and flavor.

Dry Irish Stout

The inaugural batch brewed at The Glass Jug Beer Lab for a St. Patrick's Day 2018 release. A classic low-alcohol dry stout, this beer was awarded Best of Show at the NC Brewer's Cup.

Light and crisp, but dark in color, this is a great everyday beer that is easy drinking and refreshing, while providing the classic roasted notes of coffee and chocolate you expect in a stout, without the overpowering thick sweetness.

Maple & Oak

A brown ale brewed with additions of candy cap mushrooms and aged in fresh American oak barrels. The candy caps lend a distinct maple syrup flavor, without the added fermentability of maple syrup, and the oak character adds an added layer of complexity to make for a rich and enjoyable brown ale where you will catch additional flavors with each sip.
