Le Tour de Fries

Tour de France, 176 riders from 30 different nations divided among 22 teams race 21 days July 7 through 29.

If It’s July we think of The Tour. And when we think of The Tour, we think of France. Then we think of what?? French food, correct. And when we think of French food, then we think of...( it is second in fame only to Escargots de Bourgogne). YES, French Fries!! But let's add some class to our Alhouse experience, gang, and say "pommes frites". We'll pretend we're "over there" instead of stuck in Michigan. The Pitch (at last): During the race, the Alehouse will offer a discount on its regular fries based on the nationality of the rider who won the stage the previous day. Each day a stage is raced with a winning rider or team. So each day will have a different discount based on the nationality of the winning rider. (for the team race day, the discount will be based on the nationality of the team. The discounts are:

  • France – 10%
  • Belgium or Netherlands – 20%
  • Spain or Italy – 30%
  • Germany or Australia – 40%
  • Germany or Australia – 40%
  • Great Britain or New Zealand – 50%
  • Colombia or Denmark – 60%
  • Norway, Switzerland or Poland – 70%
  • All other countries – 80%
  • Slovakia, Slovenia or Russia – 90%
  • USA – 100%

So enjoy the race in the morning and the Alehouse fries in the afternoon and evening. Cheer especially hard for the Americans as their success means free fries for you!! Races are televised on NBC Sports and the replay will be on at the Alehouse in the evening.

Alehouse Testimonials

“The atmosphere is checkered eclectic: a sort of refined clumsy cozy. If it were a car, it'd be a Cadillac Woody station wagon. I found it oddly relaxing.”

New Beer: The Tridge

New England IPA, 5.9% ABV 17 IBU

Tridge, our New England IPA, is brewed with wheat and oats to obtain the orange-hue color associated with NEIPAs. Tridge's English ale yeast blends with Citra, Mosaic and Azacca hops to pack a grapefruity flavor balanced against a very mild bitterness. A Tridge is a three way bridge such as the pedestrian bridge over the Huron River in Ypsilanti. Much like that tridge, our three hops are a path to refreshing fun!


rain or shine, it's always pouring at the YPSI alehouse
