The Glass Jug Beer Lab, at 5410 NC Highway 55, Suite V, Durham, is a retail craft beer and wine store with an on-site microbrewery, bar, and event space.
The retail store features a wide selection of craft beer from local breweries and across the world, in addition to a selection of unique wine, cider, mead, kombucha, and soda.
The bar showcases 24 taps that include 17 craft beers, 4 house-made beers, plus craft cider, kombucha, and cold brewed coffee served on nitro. Wine and mead are also available by the glass.
The on-site brewery produces experimental, one-off, small batch beers that can only be found at The Glass Jug Beer Lab and select festivals and events in the area.
Glass Jug Beer Lab also features an outdoor beer garden with picnic table seating under market lights and sunshades.
Glass Jug hosts frequent events, which you can find on their Facebook page.
Glass Jug has limited capacity and has spread out the tables. The events will take place outside.
Here’s some of what’s coming up:
Durham Disc Golf Putting Tournament
Mondays, scheduled through September 28th, 2020
Instead of a cornhole-style putting tournament, Glass Jug is spreading things out by setting up a miniature putting course around the beer garden that will better encourage groups to create a little distance and keep everyone safe and happy.
Bring 3 putters (we have some for sale if you are in need of some new discs) and take a turn at the course. Bring $5 if you’d like to enter the tournament. Depending on the number of participants, they will run either a singles or doubles tournament which will include multiple rounds through the course and the winner taking home a cash prize!
Sign up for the tournament is at 6:15 PM each week, and we will begin play at 6:30. If you are not participating in the tournament, they will allow you to fill in as space allows so that you can still putt through the course.
You are required to wear a face-covering whenever you are inside the building or if you will be within 6-feet of other customers. Please keep this in mind while playing the course. Be courteous to staff and other customers and be aware of the social distance guidelines.

Trivia in the Beer Garden
Wednesdays, scheduled through October 21st, 2020
After a bit of a hiatus, Glass Jug is excited to announce that trivia is returning next week! They’re excited to have Pickle returning to lead another season of trivia every Wednesday evening at 6:30 PM in the beer garden.
There are a few adjustments to keep everyone safe. First, if it is raining, they will have to cancel trivia, as they do not have enough indoor space to host trivia and maintain the proper distance between teams. So, dress accordingly for being outside! They will also be strictly enforcing our limit of 6 people per team, and they’ll be allowing you to self-score your team on the honor system, subject to review by Pickle (don’t be a cheater!), so that they don’t have to pass materials back and forth. All tables are spaced 6+ feet apart.
The format will remain relatively similar, but look for some new questions and new themes. There will no longer be a season-long competition. Instead, each week is a one-off event with prizes for the winning team.
