Alehouse Testimonials

Had an amazing bowl of Chicken dumpling soup...an excellent cherry cider... shared a table with old friends and great music. Thanks Ypsi Ale House for a perfect 5 star Saturday night! (Oh and did I forgot to mention the 'stout' chocolate cake for dessert).

Next Beer Releases:

MacKnauf’s 80 Shilling Ale: Scottish Expo Ale

5.8% ABV 15 IBU 193 cal/12 oz

The first in our Brewer Showcase Series: we’ve partnered with Jim Satin to brew his gold medal winning 80 shilling export here at the Alehouse. MacKnauf’s 80 Shilling Scottish Ale is an instant classic with notes of layered biscuit and caramel. Old-world hops provide a slight hint of bitter earthiness and makes for a wee pint you’ll order again and again.

Mishabooz XX Stout: Imperial Stout

8.9% ABV 88 IBU 323 cal/12 oz

A black brew powered by Michigan Cascade, Chinook, and Centennial hops from Top Hops in Goodrich, Michigan, with healthy additions of flaked oats, roasted barley, black malt, malted wheat, peat-smoked malt, dark crystal and chocolate malts, and even a bit of brown sugar

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