LOUISVILLE (March 27, 2018) –Falls City Brewing Co. is proud to announce the opening of their new taproom and brewery, located at 901 E. Liberty St. in the NuLu/Phoenix Hill neighborhood. The newly renovated space which features a 3,900 square foot taproom, 3,100 square foot beer garden and 5,100 square foot brewery and production area, will officially be open to the public for the first time on Friday, March 30, 2018.
The tap room itself will seat well over 100 people comfortably and sprawls through three different areas. The main tap room area features a bar and community table, as well as high top and low top tables and a lounge with leather couches and chairs. The “fun zone” spans the middle of the building and greets guests with dart boards and a shuffle board table. The final part of the taproom, tabbed “Ben’s Beer Hall” after Falls City’s original 1905 founder Ben Schrader, is an event space featuring German style picnic tables and capacity for up to 50 people.
The outdoor beer garden will feature picnic tables as well as a fire pit with plenty of outdoor seating. Parking is also readily available. An adjacent lot next to the beer garden features 15 spots and a larger parking lot with 32 spots can be accessed at the east end of the complex. In addition, free street parking is available on Campbell St and Liberty St.
“We’re extremely excited to finally offer a public facing taproom and brewery to serve as our home base.” Added Falls City President Shane Uttich. “It’s been a long process, but our team selflessly and collectively created an experience to show what the Falls City brand represents.”
The new taproom will feature 12 Falls City Beers on tap at all times, including their core 4 products of Pale Ale, Hipster Repellant IPA, Kentucky Common and Streetlamp Porter along with a variety of small batch rotating brews. In addition, wine from Old 502 Winery and a small selection on spirits, mainly bourbon, will be featured. Food will be available via food trucks on certain dates and small snacks will be available behind the bar. Future plans for the space include adding a permanent food tenant in an adjacent building in the coming months.
The taproom will operate 6 days a week (closed on Mondays), and will officially open to the public with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday at 11:00 am featuring Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.
“Louisville’s nationally recognized craft beer scene is thriving. The addition of Falls City’s new taproom and brewery in the NULU/Phoenix Hill neighborhood makes it even easier for residents and visitors alike to experience this iconic Louisville brand,” said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. “Falls City continues to make investments in our city and we raise a pint in celebration.”
In addition to the ribbon cutting, guests will be treated to special beer tappings each day of the opening weekend from Friday through Sunday.
