Kentucky Common

kentucky common beer

ABV: 4.0% • 20 IBU

Only three styles of beer originated in the United States.  Luckily, for us, the Kentucky Common is one. Developed in the 1850s in our home town of Louisville, this smooth brew is crafted with corn, barley and rye, similar to a bourbon distiller’s mash bill.

Back in 1905, a ragtag group of local grocers and tavern owners teamed up in Louisville, KY to start a brewery and fight a big beer monopoly.  With that, Falls City Beer was born! We’ve had our ups and downs since 1905, but that rebellious spirit lives on today as we encourage folks to come together, stand up and drink good beer! 

Today, you can find our beer throughout Kentucky, Indiana and parts of Tennessee. We offer a variety of beers in package and draft including our Classic Pilsner, Hipster Repellant IPA, English-Style Pale Ale, Streetlamp Porter and a group of rotating seasonals and small batch items available at our taproom.
