The Ypsi Alehouse was started in 2015 as a family owned micro-brewery in downtown Ypsilanti Michigan. The head Brewer is Ted Badgerow, a craft beer pioneer who started the first craft brewery in Michigan in 1983 and was written up in Time Magazine. The Alehouse brews all its beers onsite and is also a small winery that offers both wines and ciders. The Alehouse is a full restaurant offering a range of foods including vegan and vegetarian options. Live music is performed almost nightly with dinner trivia set for Sundays.
