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 Pale Ale, Hipster Repellant IPA, Kentucky Common and a full family of seasonals are available in bottles and on taps in stores and bars around the region. A variety of other small batch specialty beers are produced and available on draft at Over the 9, the restaurant and bar in the emerging Portland district just west of downtown Louisville, and other fine establishments throughout KY, IN and TN.
