New Beer: Streetcar #10

A Pre-Prohibition Pilsner. 4.6% ABV; 24 IBU

This easy drinking American Pilsner is our take on the beer that German-American brewers, often trained in Germany, brewed more than a hundred years ago during the Golden Age of American Lagers.

Brewed in the European style but with American ingredients, including a portion of corn to dilute the high protein level of domestic six-row barley, and American hops. The resulting beer is süffigheit (that is, quaffable) and refreshing, but with way more character than modern, watered down versions. It’s a perfect summer beer, and the one to have when you’re having more than one!

Next Release: Centerfield Sensation, Jun 14th

Belgian Farmhouse Saison. 5.9% ABV 17 IBU

Centerfield Sensation is a traditional Belgian farmhouse summer ale that finishes dry and spicy, with refreshing fruity notes and rocky white "Belgian lace" heads. It's a tribute to the peppy Carolyn King, first girl ever to play Little League baseball. Although banned by the national organization, Carolyn debuted in centerfield at Ypsi's Candy Cane Park in 1973, creating a local sensation filmed by national TV crews.

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.”
