Our Team

Pictured above is our incredible staff of bartenders and sales associates who help make everything run like a well-oiled machine. Be sure to thank them the next time you are at The Jug, not just for great service, but for putting up with all of our shenanigans every day!

 

Katy Creech

Katy is machine that keeps everything running smoothly at The Glass Jug. As our full-time general manager, she oversees all the day-to-day operations, guiding the ordering of beer and wine, planning events, and overseeing our staff of managers and bartenders.

Katy is a Certified Beer Server and homebrewer, so she’ll be able to wow you with her beer knowledge if you have any questions about various styles, the brewing process, beer and food pairing, etc. She also oversees our JUGs (Just Us Gals) monthly beer education classes.

If you ever have beer suggestions or questions about what is in stock, Katy will have the answer. And, if you have any comments about the store or ideas of how we could make The Glass Jug even better, please share them with Katy.

Additionally, Jon works on a lot of the little things that make The Glass Jug great, such as special-ordering kegs or package beer for customers, making sure everything is clean and organized, and working closely with Chris and Katy to keep things running smoothly.
