Falls City Brewery
About The Brand
Falls City Brewing Co. was formed in Louisville, Kentucky in 1905 when local tavern and grocery store owners began their own brewing operations as a way to break a local monopoly on beer production. After decades as a value brand, Falls City closed in 1978. The brand was reborn as a craft beer in 2010. Today, Falls City English Pale Ale and Falls City Hipster Repellant IPA are available in bottles and on taps in stores and bars around the region. A variety of other limited-run specialty beers are produced and available in pints and growlers at Over the 9, the restaurant and bar in the emerging Portland district just west of downtown Louisville.
We Currently Stock:
Falls City Kentucky Common
Ale | ABV: 4
What happens when bourbon lovers brew beer The Kentucky Common is a style of beer that started in Louisville. And at one point, more than 75 percent of Louisvillians drank Commons before the style disappeared during Prohibition. Today we craft this rich, easy-drinking ale with corn, barley and rye-just the way it used to be made.
Falls City Pale Ale
Pale Ale | ABV: 5.0
Ya’ll know us best for our Pale Ale, and for good reason. We’ve perfectly balanced the subtle hop aroma and bitterness against a more maltier, caramel backbone. Our Master Brewer puts it more simply, “This is a great craft beer. Think I’ll have another.” You could take his word for it, or you could grab your own.
Falls City Hipster IPA
IPA | ABV: 6.3
Now available at bars you've never heard of. Balanced and definitely not bland, only American hops are used to brew this piney, citrusy IPA. We use Citra hops in the aroma and Amarillo hops in the flavor, crafting a well-balanced, West Coast style IPA with a nice caramel and toffee malt bill.
Porter | ABV: 5.4
This pre-prohibition style porter is brewed with 6-row malt, molasses and lager yeast. The name pays homage to America in the 1800s. A time when lamplighters lit streetlamps surrounded by Victorian homes and neighborhood brewpubs were prominent in Louisville.
