Hops & Blues Festival

Listen to the best blues musicians around while enjoying unlimited samples from the best hoppy beer makers around.

The Glass Jug Beer Lab has once again partnered with Music Maker Relief Foundation to bring in some of the most talented NC blues musicians to rock the beer garden, and 15 of the best IPA and hop-centric breweries are going to be serving unlimited samples of their best hoppy beers for this exclusive event.


Tad Walters & Thomas Rhyant Jr will be performing with their bands through our partnership with Music Maker Relief Foundation.


The following breweries will each be pouring two different beers at the event:

The Glass Jug Beer Lab

Triple Crossing

Aslin Beer Company

Commonwealth Brewing

Resident Culture

New Anthem Beer Project

Burial Beer Co.

Benchtop Brewing

Barrel Culture Brewing and Blending

HopFly Brewing

Heist Brewery

Wilmington Brewing

Divine Barrel Brewing



Cockadoodlemoo Truck will be slinging their delicious BBQ to help soak up all those hoppy beers. Note that the ticket price does not include food, but food can be purchased individually from the truck.


This event is limited to only 300 attendees. They will include as many people as possible, but don't want you to feel crowded, as this should be a fun, relaxed event. $40 general admission ticket gets you into the show and a sample cup that can be used for unlimited samples from the various breweries on site.

We are also offering a $15 ticket for people under 21, designated drivers, or those who are just listening to the music. These tickets do not include any alcohol. No alcohol can be consumed at The Glass Jug with this ticket.
