The Brown Jug is named after the Little Brown Jug trophy that is awarded annually to the winner of the Michigan vs. Minnesota football game.
In its description, Complex cited the bar’s menu, where each item is named for a Wolverine legend, and the “sense of history” at the establishment opened in 1936. “This is a college football bar for a college football town,” it wrote.
The Brown Jug was also the No. 11 wholesale purchaser of alcohol in Washtenaw County in 2012 according to data from the Michigan Liquor Control Commission. The Jug's total in 2012 - $132,970 - represented an increase of 2 percent over 2011.
Campus bars Good Time Charley's, The Blue Leprechaun, Rick's American Cafe, and Scorekeeper's all topped the Jug in wholesale liquor purchases.
What's the number one campus bar in the U.S.? Complex says it's the Dixie Chicken, which serves Aggies at Texas A&M.
