The Black is Beautiful initiative is a collaborative effort among the brewing community and its customers, to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily. Our mission is to bridge the gap that's been around for ages and provide a platform to show that the brewing community is an inclusive place for everyone of any color. The Ypsi Alehouse is proud to participate in this collaboration. The beer itself is a hearty Russian Imperial Stout brewed with significant amounts of dark malts. These malts impart a roasted character with notes of chocolate, toffee, and coffee flavors. Cascade hops add a grapefruit and citrusy profile. Each sip will coat your mouth and a lingering bitter will echo on your palate long after your glass is empty. We selected the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation as the beneficiary of this effort.

Bottle Exchange

Alcohol selection requires that you select either a new bottle or be part of the Bottle Exchange Program. Selection of Bottle Exchange requires that you provide a clean glass growler or howler from any brewery or restaurant and that you agree to accept any brand growler or howler in exchange. Glass growlers only.  The Alehouse reserves the right to reject any glass growler/howler that in our opinion should not be used. The Alehouse will happily refill your plastic growlers on a carryout basis only.
