Brewed to highlight the finest locally sourced ingredients.


B-24

5.7% ABV / 35 IBU / American Stout


This American Stout is dark-roasted, full-bodied and jet black. With a bit of chocolate, a mild sweetness, and slightly dry finish, B-24 is well balanced between malt and hops.



Easterner Weisse

2.9% ABV / 6 IBU / Berliner Weisse


Easterner Weisse is a sour, refreshing wheat beer that has a subtle hint of hops and a distinctive character. Purists like this beer straight-up to enjoy its complexities but many take it with a flavored syrup to offset the tartness. This beer is the result of a collaborative effort between the EMU Fermentation Science Program and the Ypsi Alehouse.



Isle Royale

5.7% ABV / 35 IBU / Amber Ale


A full base of aromatic, Munich and biscuit malt pushes Isle Royale into the amber range while retaining the hoppy sock of an American IPA. So we’ve invented a whole new category -try it.



Javine

8.8% ABV / 43 IBU / Baltic Porter


Javine is the mythical household god in Lithuania that protects grain in barns. Our Javine Baltic Porter is a strong, dark lager with deep ruby hues and a rich malty finish. An array of roasted, crystal, Vienna and Munich malts meld with traditional German hops in this classic style. Javine is our anniversary beer for 2019, so come celebrate our birthday with a nod to the protector of grain!



MacKnauf's 80 Shilling Ale

5.8% ABV / 15 IBU / Scottish Ale


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 provides a slight hint of bitter earthiness and makes for a wee pint you’ll order again and again.



Mishabooz

8.9% ABV / 88 IBU / XXX Extra Stout


A black brew powered by Michigan Zeus, Nugget and Chinook hops, with healthy additions of flaked oats, malted wheat, roasted barley, black and chocolate malts, smoked malt, dark crystal malt, and even a bit of brown sugar. The alleged medicinal benefits of Mishabooz -- a result of heavy additions of Humulus Lupulus Cannabinaceae – are as yet scientifically unproven.



Mooneye IPA

7.1% ABV / 98 IBU / IPA


A touch of clean, malty sweetness rounds out the deceptively smooth and fairly dry finish, while substantial dry hopping lends floral citrusy notes to this delightful IPA. Our new Mooneye American IPA draws its hearty bitter balance from five West Coast hops. Mooneyes are frantic, hyperactive fish and their impressive leaps and passionate fighting style has earned them the nickname Freshwater Tarpon.



Pottawatomi Trail Ale

5.5% ABV / 33 IBU / American Pale Ale


Back on tap at the Alehouse by popular demand! Pottawatomie Trail Pale Ale is a throwback to the early days of American micros, featuring western US malt boosted by late additions of Oregon Cascade hops. A touch of pale wheat malt adds a clean and refreshing crispness to this classic American ale.



Rosie Country Ale

4.9% ABV / 11 IBU / Irish Red


The Emerald Isle provides the base malt for this easy-drinking Irish export ale. A wee touch of roasted barley lends a bit of red to its clean caramel character, rounded out with just a bit of noble hops bitterness.



Street Car #10

4.6% ABV / 24 IBU / Classic American Pilsner


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. It was 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 quaffable (süffigheit) and refreshing, but way more characterful than modern, watered down versions. It’s a perfect summer beer, and the one to have when you’re having more than one!



The Hotel Porter

6.8% ABV / 35 IBU / American Porter


Inspired by the historic Huron Hotel that the Alehouse calls home, our Hotel Porter is a hearty blend of dark malts which yield moderate caramel notes with a bold, roasty character. Much like a Hotel Porter, this beer is always ready to serve and has a strong hop backbone.



Tower Tart Ale

6.3% ABV / 1 IBU / Light Sour


Tower Tart is a harmonious crisp, light beer with a touch of tartness. Brewed without hops, this ale has no bitterness and yields a dry finish and is splendid with the addition of floating blackberries, or as a snakebite with our cherry cider!



Tridge

6.4% ABV / 33 IBU / New England IPA


Tridge, our New England IPA, is brewed with wheat and oats to obtain the orange-hue color associated with NEIPA’s. Tridge's English ale yeast blends with Citra, Mosaic and Azacca hops to pack a grapefruity flavor balanced against a very mild bitterness. A Tridge is a three way bridge such as the pedestrian bridge over the Huron River in Ypsilanti. Much like that tridge, our three hops are a path to refreshing fun!
