The now-defunct Axle Brewing said it hoped to find a like-minded brewer to take over their gleaming Livernois Tap when it announced it was ceasing operations in June, and it appears to have found one in Eastern Market Brewing Co., which announced it will take over the gleaming brewpub and eatery in Ferndale they’re calling the Ferndale Project. According to the Freep, EMBC will rebrand the facility, which will allow them to triple — yes, TRIPLE — their brewing capacity.

Also on today’s episode, we talk about Devin Myers, the guy from that viral guilty-of-being-black video of being questioned by police officers from Royal Oak after a white woman said he was suspicious. He faces charges from an unrelated incident allegedly fleeing the po-po. [Daily Tribune]

We also talk about what’s going on with the project to convert I-375 in Detroit from an urban freeway to a surface boulevard with bike lanes, and one other little ditty about perseverence in Detroit.

BONUS AUDIO: If you listen all the way to the end, I pull my leftover bottle of Axle’s Secret Meeting, a 13% ABV Baltic porter that was released way back in April. Is it still any good? Tune in to find out.
