Axle Brewing Co. Releases 2019 Wolf Tone BBA Imperial Stout

FERNDALE, Mich. — Earlier this month, Axle Brewing Company announced they would close their taproom and brewery on June 30 as they pursued a buyer to grow their brand. On the heels of this news, Axle is releasing the stunning 2019 Wolf Tone BBA Imperial Stout. In 2018, Wolf Tone was the first release in the brewery’s popular Livernois Barrel Project series. The inaugural release in 2018 was named one of the ‘Top 5 Michigan Beers’ by Detroit Free Press Spirits Editor, Robert Allen.

This 2019 edition delivers on the promise of its predecessor.

“We are thrilled to be able to share the 2019 Wolf Tone with our thirsty guests and loyal supporters. It’s a powerful, elegant and soulful beer that mirrors the incredibly passionate sentiments we’ve experienced over the past 2 years in Ferndale and particularly the past 2 weeks. We promised this month would end with a scream not a whisper, and this beer embraces that promise with a howl!” said Axle president Dan Riley.

Deeply resonant and nuanced, the beer is inspired by a sound produced when a note matches the natural resonating frequency of the body of a musical instrument, producing a sustaining over tone that expands and amplifies the original. Big notes of chocolate & bourbon and balanced heat echo its predecessor albeit with a touch more viscosity.

Wolf Tone is now available at the taproom while supplies last in 500 ML bottles ($13, limit 12), 16 oz. cans ($40 for 4-pack, limit 3) and on draft.
