With the State of Michigan pausing indoor dining effective November 18, the Alehouse will only be doing carry-out and delivery. Our new hours are shown below. The Alehouse expects that this pause will continue into January or February 2021 as the Covid situation shows no signs of improvement as of early December. (We hope that this outlook is too pessimistic!)
Our current hours:
Food Carry-Out and Delivery
Beer Garden (weather)
Our effort to keep all at YPSI Alehouse safe
The PHI Package Unit by RGF® is designed to eliminate sick building syndrome risks by reducing odors, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors),
smoke, mold bacteria and viruses*. Why Use RGF’s Photohydroionization Technology? Germicidal UV light rays have been used for decades by the medical industry as a method for destroying micro-organisms (germs, viruses,
bacteria). UV light is dependable and can be easily installed in HVAC systems. Germicidal UV light is effective in reducing only the
airborne micro-organisms that pass directly through the light rays. However, germicidal UV light has little to no effect on gases, vapors
or odors. Photohydroionization Advanced Oxidation, which is an active system, on the other hand, is very effective on gases, vapors, VOCs, and odors within the occupied space. Important for the Alehouse employees and guests is that actual lab tests show over 99% reductions of airborne bacteria, mold, odors and viruses. The purchase and installation of this system was made possible with a grant from the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) and the Alehouse thanks that group for their support in helping us install this and other equipment to keep our employees and guest as safe as possible. For more detail on this equipment see our section on Covid.

American IPA that's a bombshell of West Coast hops.
Baby Boo has the full savor of roasted pumpkin because it’s right in the mash. And has an aroma of fresh ginger root, with spicy hints of roasted nutmeg, cinnamon and molasses. Zesty orange lingers on the palate to create a smooth, easy finish in this traditional fall beer. This beer was inspired by the world's greatest piemaker -- Ted's grandma.
Streetcar No.10: Pre-Prohibition American Lager
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. It was brewed in the European style but with American grains, 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 watered-down modern versions. Named after a Streetcar that ran between Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor.
