Book signing

On December 6, the Ypsi Alehouse will host a book signing event with Bill Rapai, author of Brewed in Michigan: the Golden Age of Brewing in the Great Beer State (Wayne State University Press). Get your copy signed by both Bill & Michigan pioneer brewmaker Ted Badgerow. A great Christmas present to yourself or for any beer fan.

Beer—seasonal debut

The Ypsi Tickle will be home again on December 14th! This strong ale, with a complex malty character and toffee tones has a real torched bourbon finish.

Hot stuff name off—update

The Eastern Michigan Fermentation Science Program in collaboration with The Brinery has developed a nice Hopped Hot Sauce. The competition for the name has been fierce and EMU has gone into overtime to make their decision! We will let you know as soon as we know.

Community dinner

The Washtenaw Sherrif's Department, The Downtown Association of Ypsilanti and The Ypsi Alehouse are teaming together with the support of local merchants to provide a free community dinner on December 12th. If you know someone in need, please let them know. The dinner will run 11a to 3p.
