The Glass Jug – Craft Beer Store Extraordinaire!

Glass Jug Official logo (web)

If you live in SW Durham and are a lover of craft beer, then you know just how awesome this past year has been for our little pocket of Durham. Sam’s Bottle Shop, Growler Grlz, Beer Durham and The Glass Jug all opened and good beer is now no more than a mile or 3 away.

Read through to the end to find out how to win a swag bag of great Glass Jug gear!

My husband and I happen to live in Parkwood, which is just up the road,  so our go-to stop for a tasty pint has become The Glass Jug. A mere mile-ish away, it is the closest stop to fill our growlers, sit and socialize with old friends and new, over said tasty pints, and grab beers to bring home.

Part of what makes it our go-to destination are the owners Katy and Chris. They’ve really made Glass Jug a fun place to hang out. From weekly tastings, to the NC Brewery of the month events, Knitting and Craft Club and special events, there is always something to look forward to.

Along side having a great selection of beer, you can also grab snacks on site or bring your own food. We regularly bring subs, BBQ or gyros to devour. Fun too to pair your food with a beer. The Glass Jug offers hummus and pita, chicken salad and pita, Spiced Cackalacky nuts, local cheese from Prodigal Farm, and treats like Chapel Hill Toffee, The Mad Popper popcorn, cookies, cheese straws and of course, treats for your furr baby from Barley Labs. Did I mention cigars. Yup, they also carry Bull City Cigars. Oh and Brood sodas. As you can tell, there is always something new to discover, which I love!



The Glass Jug is a retail craft beer store with a great selection of local and craft beer, featuring 16 rotating taps with an emphasis on seasonal brews, one-off special releases, and new collaborations with local breweries, in addition to all of your favorite craft beers, specialty wine, and cider.”

Have you heard of Stealz? This is a new phone ap that allows you to check in to various retail stores for a point and add additional points by sharing pictures to twitter and Facebook. Depending on how many points you accumulate, you are eligible for certain prizes. At The Glass Jug, I happened to get enough points to get the 32oz growler (empty), growler coozie or box, and two t-shirts. Since I happen to have all of these already, I want to give mine away.


Do you love beer? Comment on this blog about your favorite NC Beer for a chance to win the whole shebang. Enter between now and Friday, December  19th at noon. Winners will be announced by 3pm and the winner can pick-up their prize at The Glass Jug. (And maybe fill your growler too =)) While the “Stealz” deals have since changed at The Glass Jug, it is definitely worth downloading and popping in for a brew and collect your points.

So jump in your car and visit any one of the SW Durham’s new craft beer stores, you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Drinking!

  7. For me Jade IPA from Foothills is the best thing coming out of NC. It seems I am not alone on this choice. Not surprising, really, the citrusy goodness is easy to love.

  8. I second the nomination for Freak of Nature from Wicked Weed for the best NC brewed beer. For those of you who haven’t been to Asheville to enjoy a pint, its an incredible IPA!

  9. Favorite NC beer? Four Saints Brewing Company’s St. Augustine Jalapeno Smoked Brown Ale. You plan meals around that bad boy.

  10. I got so excited that I forgot to mention my favorite NC beer! My solid anytime brew has become Highland Cold Mountain Winter Ale while my holiday indulgence is Mother Earth Silent night. I was happy and lucky enough to snag a bottle of both recently at The Glass Jug! Merry Christmas to ME!!

  11. LOVE The Glass Jug! The owners are great folks and that’s just part of the reason why I’ve made it my “go-to” spot after work!

  12. Since moving to NC two months ago, I’ve discovered so many great beers. I’m loving the offerings from Natty Greene’s, Lonerider, Big Boss…the list goes on. But one that really impressed me and has stuck with me is the Thrilla In Vanilla from Double Barley Brewing.

    I also just realized that The Glass Jug is just a quick trip down NC-55 from where I stay, so I will definitely be checking them out soon.

  13. I live in North Raleigh but love love love The Glass Jug and try to swing by after work on my way home. My favorite Triangle beer is anything from Haw River…if we go further outside, I’m gonna go with Jade from Foothills or anything from Highland 🙂

    Johanna, looks like your book is gonna need some updating 🙂
