The readme for TheBeerHouse explains how to attach a DB to a local SQL Server. This is probably also discussed in the deployment chapter. This is sometimes needed because the SQL Server utilities (such as Sql Server Management Studio) can't open tables from a DB that merely exists in the App_Data folder. Only Visual Studio, and ASP.NET, know how to auto-attach to a DBF file.
