Named after the historic Michigan Vs. Minnesota football trophy, the Brown Jug has been a staple in Ann Arbor since 1938. The Brown Jug has the respect for tradition you would expect from a U of M mainstay. Football is the priority here: the menu items are even named after Wolverine legends. Regulars love the sense of history, backed up by fawning alumni who have called the place a second home as far back as the 1940s. This is a college football bar for a college football town.
