The tailgate is free and open to the public; beers are $6 apiece. Hours: opens two hours before kickoff, stays open during the game, and remains open two hours after the game ends.
It's everyone's favorite night of the week -- Saturday morning! We love football season, and we want you to hang out with us. Premium Lager 15-oz drafts will be $2 during Michigan games, and two-fer brat or hot dog specials will be available on each football Saturday.

It's one of our favorite times of year -- Oktoberfest release day! This year, it all goes down starting on Thursday, September 1 at 4 pm. We'll be running German food specials all weekend long to celebrate! Bonus points (and maybe a couple prizes) if you sport your lederhosen. Prost!
It's Tigers bus trip time! Each ticket gets you round-trip transportation from Ann Arbor to Detroit, a ticket to the 7:10 pm game vs. the Angels (with fireworks at the end of the game!), and beer on the bus to and from the game!
As usual, we'll make a stop at the Detroit Beer Co for some brews and food, then walk to the stadium. The bus will pick us up at a designated spot after the game.
Yes, it is true -- this year's game is on a Saturday and not a Sunday like it usually is! Last year, it was reported to us that Monday was a little rough on some people after indulging all day on Sunday. So this way, there's an extra day of cushion AND we get fireworks! And hopefully fewer sunburns...
Tickets will be available up until a few days before the event, but this trip sells quickly! So, cap off your summer with friends, beer, and baseball!
Tickets are available for purchase through Eventbrite.
