Tapping into The YPSI Alehouse Experience

We offer European pub style service, so when you come in, head around to the bar and order all food and beverages there. You'll get your beer cold from the tap and we will deliver your food to you when it ’ s ready.

The Ypsi Alehouse is a no tippping establishment.

Mishigama Craft Beers are brewed and served at the Ypsi Alehouse. Select beers are now available at nearby restaurants.

Sit at our bar and enjoy our Mishigama craft beer, and home made sodas. Check out our sitting rooms with original tile floors where conversations flow between friends, old and new, over a pint. We brew right at the Ypsi Alehouse and have delectable beers handcrafted by our creative Head Brewer, Ted Badgerow. Ted has been brewing craft beer in Michigan since microbrewing began in the midwest. His beer was first featured in Time Magazine in 1983!
