The Glass Jug is taking growlers to the next level with their counter-pressure filling technology. Now your tasty brews stay fresher longer—oh happy day! Coming fall 2017, the Glass Jug Beer Lab!

The Glass Jug announced that it will expand and become Glass Jug Beer Lab in fall 2017. Plans include: on-site brewery, outdoor beer garden and expanded event space. Owner Chris Creech is calling the brewing concept a "nano" brewery, meaning they will brew experimental batches, all smaller than five barrel batches. Read more about the plans here. Ride on out to the Glass Jug and fill up a growler, check out their bottle selection, or chat with their ultra-knowledgeable staff! Growlers are those big ole glass jugs (and occasionally smaller bottles) that beer enthusiasts fill with their favorite brews. But aside from that, Glass Jug has an endless supply of craft brews from around the region and beyond, and is always showcasing something new and fun on tap. Here's a little history lesson: for years, however, growlers were tin pails or waxed cardboard containers filled up by bartenders at breweries. The problem was that any beer in old-style growlers would go flat a day or two after being purchased. Over the past five years, technological advances driven by the craft beer movement have resulted in the use of counter-pressure filling technology, eliminating the risk of stale (oxidized) or flat beer. In 2013, the state of North Carolina relaxed their growler filling regulations, allowing bars and retail stores to refill growlers for customers, meaning you no longer have to go to a brewery to get your growlers filled back up and paving the way for stores such as The Glass Jug to open.
