Like Great Beer? How 'bout beer with roller derby? Yup, something wicked definitely this way cometh!

Ann Arbor Derby Dimes

It's happening at Buhr Park on Packard in Ann Arbor June 24 @ 6pm. Enjoy one of our great Alehouse beers while savoring the sight of the Vigilantes taking on the Mitten Mavens from East Lansing. In the second bout it's the Ann Arbor Brawlstars and the Queen City Lake Effect Furies.

When the fun is over, you will be glad to have had some of our winning brews to help you through it all. Here's the best thing to do after watching a roller derby:

  1. Go to the Alehouse to rethink what you thought was the meaning of life. Others there will be there doing the same.
  2. Contemplate this truth: Beer: Sometimes your best friend. Sometimes your ONLY friend.
