Axle Brewing Cans ‘Very Stable Genius’ Malt Liquor

FERNDALE, Mich. — Last February, a tweet reassured millions of Americans that not only was their leader brilliant but not remotely volatile. This interesting moment inspired Ferndale’s Axle Brewing Co. to launch their ‘Very Stable Genius’ beer. Invigorated by the continued poise and grace it’s namesake has demonstrated over the past year, the brewery will bring back the popular beer this weekend, this time in cans and on draft exclusively at Axle’s Livernois Tap.

“The beer itself really defies conventional logic and rational explanation. It’s like, really delicious, and it’s way huge, but also beautifully limited. It’s one of the most powerful beers in the world, yet incredibly delicate and very fragile. And just to be clear, this beer has never been made anywhere in the world before, not even by us earlier this year!”, said Axle Brewing Co. President Dan Riley.

A 9.3% super-dry Malt Liquor, VSG has an ethereal orange hue and a heady foam with a straw color rarely found in nature. Just when you think it couldn’t get more interesting, the flavor profile escalates dramatically. The confounding aroma hits you in short confusing bursts before coalescing around a pronounced hint of lunacy.

Very Stable Genius will be sold in 4 packs of 16oz. cans and on draft while supplies last starting this weekend. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Ferncare, a non-profit, self-funded, free clinic that provides no-cost medical care to the medically uninsured.
