Axle Brewing Company will release Very Stable Genius beer at their Ferndale tap room next month.

Axle Brewing Company is releasing a beer inspired by a recent tweet from President Donald Trump. Very Stable Genius beer will be a limited release beer coming soon to Livernois Tap in Ferndale.

The beer will likely be a pale, saison style and will be served exclusively on tap at the Ferndale restaurant and taphouse starting next month.

On Saturday Trump caused buzz when he tweeted that he was a "genius...and a very stable genius at that" in a series of tweets about his mental stability, which has been questioned in the new book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by journalist Michael Wolff.

"The beer itself really defies conventional logic and rational explanation," said Axle Brewing president Dan Riley. "It's like, really delicious, and it's going to be huge, but also very limited. It's one of the most powerful beers in the world, yet incredibly delicate, even fragile."

He describes the beer as having an "ethereal orange hue."

"The confounding aroma entices with notes of frankincense & myrrh, and just a subtle hint of lunacy," added Riley, who opened his taproom and restaurant in June.

Axle Brewing Company's Livernois Tap is at 567 Livernois in Ferndale. Hours are 4-10 p.m. Tues.-Thurs., 4-11 p.m. Fri., noon-11 p.m. Sat. and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Sun. Call (248) 284-2422.
