Axle Brewing Company Taps ‘Very Stable Genius’ Imperial Wheat Ale

FERNDALE, Mich. – Earlier this month, Detroit area’s Axle Brewing Co. announced the upcoming release of their newest craft beer, entitled ‘Very Stable Genius’ inspired by a strange tweet from our from our President. After igniting considerable excitement from local media and drinkers, the brewery is excited to tap the 8.5% ABV Imperial Wheat starting this Thursday, January 25t h at Livernois Tap, their Ferndale taproom. Says founder Dan Riley: “VSG is powerful, yet delicate and even fragile, consistent with its inspiration.”

In conjunction with the VSG beer launch, Axle Brewing Co. is investing in the local media community by aligning with neighborhood partners to benefit Ferndale Radio (100.7 FM) and fund the design of their new studio space in the Rust Belt Market.

“We are thrilled about this partnership. With the collaborative genius of Axle Brewing, Patrick Thompson Design, Long White Beard and Live Edge Detroit behind us, we’ll have a studio space to match the character and creativity of the rest of the Rust Belt Market. We can’t thank them enough.” says Michelle Mirowski, President, Ferndale Radio

The radio station began broadcasting from the Rust Belt last November and the group of local artisans Axle has engaged will enable them to enhance their physical space and provide operating funds. Partner contributors include: Patrick Thompson Design, to provide design direction; Long White Beard who will assist in construction; and a donation of reclaimed wood from Live Edge Detroit.

“We’re very proud to add some substance to the satire by dedicating a portion of sales from ‘Very Stable Genius’ to a worthy non-profit that creates authentic content and shares our passion for music and culture. We love being able to engage our friends and neighbors who share our values and can make it happen.” says Riley.

Rust Belt Market’s Revel Bar will tap VSG on January 26th with all proceeds benefiting the new Ferndale Radio space. Additionally, $1 from each pint sold at Axle’s Livernois Tap will benefit the cause. The team has already started planning the new studio and construction will start in February. Launch date and grand opening party of the Ferndale Radio’s Studio will be announced as construction progresses.
