Falls City Brewing Co. is making a push in 2016 to double capacity with more growth beyond into the future. The Louisville, Kentucky-based brewery announced that it will add two more bottled beers to store shelves in March in the lower Great Lakes region with hopes to have seven brands available by the end of 2016.

All this is because of a $1.3 million expansion to the brewery, adding fermentation tanks, a brite tank and a walk-in cooler to its seven-barrel brewhouse while increasing production with its contract brewer, Nashville’s Blackstone Brewery.

The brewery debuted its new lineup of seasonals, starting with “Easy Goer Session IPA” for the summer along with a new core beer, “Kentucky Common”.

falls city brewing “It’s a great style, not just for beer enthusiasts but for everyday drinkers,” said Brewmaster Dylan Greenwood about the Dark Cream Ale. “It’s sessionable at 4 percent alcohol and only 20 IBUs. It’s got an interesting flavor with the corn and rye.

“The corn adds some sweetness and the rye adds some spiciness.”

Greenwood said after some brewers had come across old brewing logs, the long forgotten beer is making a comeback. “We finally figured out what they had been doing to make it and now we are trying to do a good version of it,” he said.

Falls City originally opened in 1905 and closed in 1978, with the brand later reborn as a craft brewery in 2010.

Other seasons will include “Harvest Ale” in the fall, “Red Rye Lager” in the winter and “Scotch Ale with Heather Tips” for next spring.

Available statewide in Kentucky and Indiana, Falls City is also available in Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee with the brand expanding into southern Ohio soon.

Greenwood said that Falls City has been distributed to Aruba as well with hopes of adding more international places down the line.

Stateside, Falls City is looking to be added in Georgia, North Carolina and West Virgina later this year as well.

Falls City produced 4,100 barrels in 2015 and plan to make 8,000 for 2016 with plans for 12,000 in 2017.
