What Happened, What's Coming

The Ypsi Heritage Festival was a great success and city should be proud of the effort put in by the organizers. People really enjoyed the helicopter and balloon rides. And – of course the beer and cider from the Ypsi Alehouse. But now we look forward to the opening of the fall beer season along with the football and dart seasons. And the Woodruff’s Porter will be back on tap soon.

September brings the start of the new dart league season and there are two teams playing out of the Alehouse. Both are interested in adding a player so if you are interested please contact the Alehouse for contact information. The Ypsi Alehouse will be part of the Beer, Brats and Bands event in Canton on September 9. Seems to be an annual sell-out so get your tickets soon.

The Ann Arbor Hands on Museum is planning an adult night – a Pint at the Museum on September 15. That is lots of fun – cruise the museum while having a Pint of beer from the Ypsi Alehouse. Click here for tickets.

Roller Derby is back for their final matches on September 16. Go to Buhr Park in Ann Arbor, watch a match and enjoy a beer or cider from the Alehouse. First up: Arbor Bruising Co. vs. Downriver Roller Dolls: Doll Starz and in the second match, Ypsilanti Vigilantes vs. Downriver Roller Dolls: Muscle. A nice fall evening is expected.

Alehouse's Famous Dead Person Quote

As the need arises, and mostly to fill in some of the white space on our website's home page, we insert gratuitous quotations by dead poets, writers and comedians. Sometimes they are good enough to write down and magnet to your refrigerator. This time it's comedian Rodney Dangerfield.

"During sex my wife always wants to talk to me. Just the other night she called me from a hotel."
