    **For the 2nd year** Canine Color Walk!

    You and your dog are welcome to join the fun in the Canine Color Walk. Take your best friend on a prismatic 2K trot through the Rainbow Run course. Each pup will get a white bandana that will can be colored on their rainbow route.

    Produced by the Ferndale Area Chamber of Commerce, the Rainbow Run is for everyone who supports diversity and acceptance, supports anti-bullying programs, and believes we cannot be complete until all persons are included. This celebration of the colorful diversity of the community takes place the weekend of Ferndale Pride.

    The race will start and finish in the front of the Ferndale Public Library!





















    A portion of our proceeds will support seven (7) great organizations: Blessings in a Backpack, Camp Casey, Ferndale Police Auxiliary, Habitat for Humanity, Pride, Team GUTS, and the Ferndale Area Chamber of Commerce:

    Our family-friendly event has something for everyone. If a run is not your style, try the 2K walk. Strollers are welcome in any of the run/walk events, but please no bikes on the course, or dogs on the non-canine walk.

    It's all about the fun. Because runners will most likely slow down as they go past each color station, it's more about the fun than the performance. We won't be timing this event and runners will not be placed. However, if you would like to time your run, we recommend bringing your own timer.



    Registration will begin at 8:30 am.

    The run / walk start times will be staggered by category starting at 10:05 am. The race will start and finish in the front of the Ferndale Public Library.

    JOIN US for this Business After Five at Axle Brewing Company/Livernois Tap! A relaxed atmosphere to network and mingle. Heavy appetizers and refreshments available. Looking forward to seeing all our Members there, especially if you haven't attended a program in awhile!

    Every brewery has a story of how it came to be. Most are romantic, some are full of lunacy, and many are straight-up business opportunities. Then, there are the happy accidents, when good people with shared values, passion and ambition collide.

    That’s our story. As native sons and daughters of Detroit, we picked a name that reflected a sense of place and literally keeps wheels in motion! Since late 2015, we’ve been busting our butts to bring some seriously great beers to market.

    We’ve also been building our new home on Livernois Ave. in South Ferndale opening in late 2016. We think you’ll enjoy drinking our beers in an incredible setting as much as we did creating them.

    At Axle Brewing, our philosophy is simple: make great beer in the time-honored tradition with an eye toward innovation, and allow an independent spirit to guide us.

    Beer is the lubricant of life’s moments. We celebrate the happy ones, the sad ones and the places in between. Stories, music, loved ones, and great beer never go out of style.

    Axle Brewing has announced that the culinary team behind the popular Grey Ghost restaurant in Detroit will be heading up the food operations at its forthcoming Ferndale tap room.
