We went for a couple of beer and food. The beers was exceptional. We particularly enjoyed the session ipa. It was not too bitter 44ibu, 4.8% beer. The burgers was good. We enjoyed the atmosphere and music.

My husband and I have eaten at Ypsi Alehouse a few times and we are never disappointed!!! The food is excellent, always unique, well-prepared and high quality - a favorite of ours are the beet fries. Along with the comfortable atmosphere, Ted and his team...are awesome. I highly recommend Ypsi Alehouse.More

A very unique place to relax and gather with friends. If you’re lucky, the head brewmaster Ted will sit at your table to drink a pint and tach you about the brew process Ted is one of the longest brewmasters in Michigan winning many awards....You might also be lucky to hear his awesome tenor voice singing a few songs for all to enjoy. Great food with a twist in a historic building downtown. You’ll have to try the Blue Racer with real blueberries at the bottom of your pint. My friends really enjoyed the eveningMore

My wife and I stopped in to try out this location on a Friday night. Parking on the street was easy. Walking in we encountered a duo singing - enjoyable. We tried several of the beers. My wife loved the Blue Racer which has blueberries...and honey. I tried one of the award winners, Potawatomi Trail but found that I was partial to the DejaBrew Brown. Prices were very reasonable especially during Happy Hour. We enjoyed the Beet Fries though we found the serving to be a little small. However, the Sweet Potato Enchilada more than made up for it. Outstanding! My Smokehouse Style burger was very good - would like to see it come with some fries. Wait staff was very pleasant. WE WILL BE BACK to try more food and beers!More

Got the small plate of wings (buffalo caramel) and a pint of the local IPA. Both very good. Watch out fpr parking on the street. Meters are required before 6p. I learned that there are a few free spaces in the back though.

Beer good, people great, atmosphere welcoming, dart boards, no blaring TV's, staff is friendly, Ted the brewer hangs out and ends the evening with an Irish ballad, makes for a great night out. The food, though hmm... it USED to be great.. staff must have...changed because it is not cooked well now. Even the killer fries were just ordinary& overcooked. Eat someplace else. Come here for the beer, comradery & music.More

I love this place, great beer, super friendly, good food. Whats not to love. Ted the brewer is always willing to talk about his passion for beer and music. Very reasonable beer prices - they always have something on tap for $2 a glass and...always good. I'm not a huge microbrew person, but I like beer and have had quite a variety of styles - everything I've had at the alehouse has been great.More

Very comfortable and low key. Has there when group has performing. Good space for music. They have a no tip system... You order at the bar, get a table number and the food is brought to you. I usually leave a tip when I close...my tab although it is not required.More

So glad to have finally found a brewery nearby with both great brews AND great food. Usually seems to be one or the other, but not both. Bonus being a short drive, I might just have to buy into the mug club. Got the sampler...of 4 for $10: Smeet Frog (session ale), Tridge (new england IPA), Isle Royale (amber ale), and Blue Racer (blueberry honey wheat ale). They were all tasty! Least favorite was the amber and that was still pretty good. Blue Racer was a surprise (not usually a fan of wheat ales), nicely balanced with the honey and if anything could've used a bit more blueberry. Husband had the Smeet Frog as well and liked it. Very interested to try the other ales so will have to return soon. :) Foodwise, again was tasty and have to go back and try other things. Got the baked brie with apple and also fries with jalapeno beer cheese and chorizo (looked like the chorizo I buy from Dos Hermanos market just a few blocks away). Can't say enough good things about the fries!! Nothing against the brie though, which was excellent! Want to go back and try the charcuterie board, truffle fries, and a burger. Actually want to try everything on the menu. Everything else was nicely done. Appreciated the comfortable, round lounge chairs. Liked the self-serve station with water, napkins, silverware, condiments, etc. Will have to throw darts sometime or play a board game. Trivia was going on (6pm Sunday) - will have to come back and sign up/play for real. Was nicely organized. Really impressed with the first visit here. Great beer and food, and fun atmosphere! Thought the prices were reasonable too.More
