Beer Releases

Baby Boo Pumkin Spice Ale-9/20

5.4% ABV 7 IBU

Baby Boo Pumpkin is inspired by Maude Mae Duffy Bailey, the world's greatest piemaker --and Ted's grandma. She always requested a full head to filter her beer. We baked lots of pumpkin and tossed in liberal doses of fresh ginger root, orange peel, dark molasses, cinnamon sticks and nutmeg. So here's to you, grandma! We're drinking your pumpkin pie in every glass.

Backyard Frog Harvest Ale-10/3

5.9% ABV 44 IBU

Ted has been growing his own Willamette hops since 1982. This beer is made with the hops he harvested from the back wall of the Ypsi Alehouse. They are organic and naturally dried to create the frog hoppy finish of Backyard Frog -- a relative of Ypsi's infamous Smeet Frog. It hearkens back to the day when all your beers came from freshly harvested hops! Available by pre-order only.
