Fancy beer, nice atmosphere, but you have to be into the craft beer scene to fully enjoy it. They have a small shop where you can buy craft beers which is pretty cool to check out. The outside seating is also nice during the Fall or cool summer evening.

Great location nd selection of take home beers as well as beers on draft. There is a nice area for sitting and hanging out as well. Prices are on par with the market and parking is very easy in this shopping center. Gets busy after work and on the weekends.

The Glass Jug is cool because they are both a microbrewery and a bottle shop, so you don't ever feel like they are forcing their brews on you. That being said, the Raspberry Pi sour if theirs I had was very tasty! The staff were all very friendly towards me and my dog (and gave her several treats). They have a nice outdoor area behind the store to sit at that is nice and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the shopping center. A great place to relax for a while!

The glass jug is a great spot for a quick drink after work. It is conveniently located near RTP and my favorite place for happy hour.

I LOVE THIS PLACE. Not only do they have their own awesome brews but they also have a pretty well stocked bottle shop. This is such a nice place to kick back one afternoon and grab beers with your friends. They allow you to bring food from neighboring stores and you have a wide variety of options to choose from

Glass Jug is hands down the best craft beer establishment in south Durham. Drafts (including beer brewed there), retail selection, staff, atmosphere...all top notch. They have stellar tap takeovers and fun events regularly. (Trivia, food trucks, themed events ect.) Spacious back patio with picnic tables that is perfect on a summer evening. Or any beautiful day for that matter. The atrium is also a cool area to view the brewery side of the building and is great for a large get together or party. Staff is super knowledgeable, friendly, easy to chat with. The owners, Katy and Chris are the sweetest people. You can tell they genuinely care about the beer community, their customers and their staff. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for awesome beer with a chill vibe. Love love love.

This place is becoming a regular go to spot after work with friends. The staff is nice and even provides gear for corn hole if you’re interested. Their rotating beers are good and they have some solid can choices in the fridge at reasonable prices.

Fairly small bar and bottle shop. Best reason to come is their own beers, brewed on site. Love their sours! Seating at the bar is limited but there is outdoor seating in front and back. Various events during the week (like food trucks and trivia) and some games round out the entertainment. Beware of parking lot pot holes!

Awesome spot, with excellent options. I am a huge fan of the growlers to go. I pick up a few of these every month. There is a beer store, a bar, and a patio out back. A lot more space than what it looks like on the outside. Pro tip: if you like this place, check out Barrel Culture a couple of min up the road. I am partial to the glass jug, but Barrel Culture is close by and worth a try.
