Axle Brewing Falls Prey To Daunting Craft Beer Economics, Plus 7 Things To Know
Welcome to a bonus Friday edition of your Daily Detroit. Today, we discuss the sad news that Axle Brewing will shutter its Livernois Taproom June 30th, barely two years after it first opened. Dave Phillips, one-half of Podcast Detroit and the IT in the D podcast, and himself a former partner in a failed craft brewery, joins us to discuss how difficult it is to succeed in an uber-competitive sector, where even established brands have to fight for shelf space, and drinkers like me fret about overabundance. Axle President Dan Riley told the Freep the brand doesn’t have the scale or cost structure to see a “clear path” to turning a profit.
