Yup…we most certainly can! Beginning the first week of October, our beer will be available in 12oz aluminum cans. The decision to switch from bottles to cans was made for many reasons, but most importantly, cans are more sustainable for the environment and they help keep beer fresh for a longer period of time.
Our year-round lineup will still feature our core products of Pale Ale, Hipster Repellant IPA and Kentucky Common. In addition, we will be adding a fourth year-round beer, Streetlamp Porter. Streetlamp is a pre-prohibition style porter that is brewed with 6-row malt, molasses and lager yeast. The name and style pay homage to America in the 1800s. A time when lamplighters lit the streetlamps around town and neighborhood breweries were prominent throughout Louisville. For more information on our beers, click here.
With the new can launch, we’ll also be introducing a new secondary logo with the motto, “Our City, Your Beer.” This motto was developed to pay homage to our hometown of Louisville, and the founders of Falls City Beer, a group of local grocery store and tavern owners, who banded together in 1905 to fight a big beer monopoly by starting Falls City Brewing Co. here in Louisville.
Today, we strive to carry on the monopoly-busting spirit of our founders, by not only brewing innovative and high quality beer, but also bringing people together to share a few brews! It is our belief that there is a beer for every person and a beer for every occasion. We continue to work hard to brew a variety of new styles that live up to our mission and appeal to people of all kinds.
To celebrate the release of our cans, we’ll be holding a can-launch party on Thursday, October 5th in Louisville at Molly Malone’s (Highlands). The fun starts at 6pm with beer specials and giveaways all night long! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@FallsCityBeer) for more information.
