LBJ's Barry Come Home Campaign

To aid in the effort of the Winnipeg Jets to secure Barry Trotz as the franchise's new head coach, Little Brown Jug Brewing (LBJ) is offering Barry Trotz complimentary beer for life and a beer named after him.           

 

The Winnipeg Jets are in the market for a head coach and Barry Trotz is the perfect fit for Manitoba. Barry Trotz not only boasts an incredible resume that includes a Stanley Cup and claim to third place on the all-time coach wins list – his hometown is Dauphin, Manitoba. As Manitoban’s know, a lot of us move away but we always remain Manitobans. Barry, it’s time to come home.           

 

To make this decision even easier for the coach, Little Brown Jug Brewing Company is committed to sweetening the deal. If Barry Trotz comes home and signs a deal with The Winnipeg Jets, he will receive complimentary LBJ beer for life. Not just that, a beer named after the coach will be added to the LBJ lineup, as a way of welcoming a fellow Manitoban back to the province.           

 

For fans that want to help with this cause, use #barrycomehome on Twitter. Use it to voice what you think the Barry Trotz beer should be named. Or send a friendly Manitoban invitation to the coach in your own words. An LBJ prize pack will be awarded to a randomly selected fan who uses this hashtag.

 

“I don’t know how a good Manitoban guy could overlook the opportunity to come back, turn a team around in his home province, have free beer for life and his own beer from our favourites over at Little Brown Jug” – Andrew Patterson (partner/host, Winnipeg Sports Talk)

 

For further enquiries, please contact James Hofer, Office Administrator and Liaison at Little Brown Jug Brewing.

5 Years of Beers!

5 Years of Beers!

Here is where our story starts. With a dream of building a company to build community, Kevin found an overlooked hundred year-old building in Winnipeg’s historic exchange district. This old livery that once held horses for city hall is given a new life and a company (of believers) is assembled.

And then came the beer. 1919, The beer that started it all. A revolutionary classic. Easy drinking and full of flavour, it is a balance we are proud of. 

Some may have questioned building a brand around one product, but we believe in our product THAT much. We brewed 1919 over and over again to create a beer that is good by any standard. We now take the same intention and precision and apply it to craft every new beer we add. Now with a lineup of flagships & seasonals, we love having new offerings for you to try, knowing you can count on quality & flavourful LBJ brews.

⁠We learned a lot from brewing and canning 1919 over and over. We apply that same intention and precision to every beer we now make. As we expand our production and offerings, you can continue to count on us for quality & flavour in all our brews. ⁠

Little Brown Jug makes and sells beer.  While we're at it, we work to make things better for our team, customers, and community. Each of our staff make up the pristine beer machine that is LBJ. Every year we are here, we get to push the limits of what a brewery can do for our community.

We want our employees to be proud to work here and our customers to be proud to drink here. We invest in our people. It is important to LBJ to be a workplace that is positive, respectful, fun, and inclusive. When we look at this team full of ambitious, dedicated, and uplifting folks, we could not be more proud. 

"I started LBJ with the goal of building a company to build a community. It was never meant to be about me. I wanted it to be its own thing made from the ingredients that surround it. YOU are part of Little Brown Jug and our story, our customers, our partners, our employees, our suppliers, our neighbourhood, city and province. We’re invested, bricks-and-mortar, in this place, with you." -Kevin Selch, LBJ Founder.

 We are proud to make our wind-swept prairie town all more delightful, interesting, and cool. In this way all of us service industry businesses, we are city building; we are building the community we want to live in.
