There are a couple ways to find your self into the Jug Brotherhood. The conventional path is to create a high quality replica Little Brown Jug and to send your pics of the effort over to me. The other means is via editorís discretion (see Jil Gordon, the artist who paints the score on the jug). Today Iím proud to introduce two new members of Local 1903 who took different paths to breath the rarefied air of Jug Valhalla.
Tom Kemp emailed last month and made his case for immortality. No, he didnít create his own replica crock…he actually bought one from current brother Brian Snider. Recall that Snider made a few different jugs and he ended up offering a couple for sale. Now letís be clear–> you canít buy love and you canít buy your way into this premium club. No sir. But if you put the jug on your desk and have it sit prominently behind you in a corporate video announcing your companyís partnership with Samsung…you are IN:

And P.S., the replica Paul Bunyan Trophy doesnít hurt your case either.

Brian Igoe took the more conventional path by painstakingly creating his own jug. He emailed me a while ago with his photos so his membership is a bit overdue:
Beautiful work man..and nice nice M Man Cave! Is that Kramer helmet tucked in that bookshelf?
So Brian and Tom, welcome to the Brotherhood. Roll call:
