A tasty Michigan Blueberry Honeywheat with absolutely zero IBU
“I was able to try a couple of Ypsi Alehouse brews at the Ypsilanti Heritage Fest before visiting the brew pub location downtown. I stopped in for dinner Saturday night, and tried the food, as well. I went with the 'Goat in the garden Biscuit', which I paired with the Backyard Frog. Yes!” Anonymous Patron

Pottawatomie Trail: American Pale Ale
5.5% ABV 33 IBU
Back on tap at the Alehouse by popular demand! Pottawatomie Trail Pale Ale is a throwback to the early days of American micros, featuring western US malt boosted by late additions of Oregon Cascade hops. A touch of pale wheat malt adds a clean and refreshing crispness to this classic American ale.
Ypsitucky Kentucky Common
4.4% ABV 22 IBU
Ypsitucky Common Ale is our re-creation of an original American style - Kentucky Common Ale, which thrived in the Louisville area and died abruptly in 1919 with the start of Prohibition. Ypsitucky’s light palate and low bitterness are enhanced by the sweetness of corn and the snap of rye, leaving you a smooth dry finish with a hint of roast. This historical workingman’s beer commemorates those WWII Willow Run workers with proud Kentucky roots.
Jurata Baltic Porter
8.8% ABV 43 IBU
Jurata is the mythical Queen of the Baltic Seas and we believe that our Jurata is the Queen of Baltic Porters. Jurata is a strong, dark lager with deep ruby hues and a rich malty finish. An array of roasted, crystal, Vienna and Munich malts meld with traditional German hops in this classic style. Jurata is our anniversary beer for 2019, so come celebrate our birthday while the Queen is still in the house!
