Fall's City

Quote:
The Falls City Brewing Company was based in Louisville, KY and operated from 1905-1978. The company was organized by local tavern and grocery store owners and the name taken from the original name of Louisville, because it is on the site of the only large waterfall on the Ohio River south of Pittsburgh. This company was a bit different than most breweries in the USA as it was not family owned. It was organized to break a local monopoly on beer production by the Central Consumers Company. Central Consumers also owned the taverns (or tied houses) located in neighborhoods where they could be operated profitably. The brewer, acting as landlord and supplier at the same time, caused the tavern operator to be at their mercy. This practice, while common in the UK, was later outlawed in the US.
1946


1954


1963


1970

I remember that campaign. It actually ran for quite awile in both print and TV ads - kinda like the Fruit Of The Loom guys, except they were stuck inside a mouth. You can still find them on You Tube.

Thanks for the info....You should take pics of your can collection. I never saw 8 ounces cans til I came across those ads.

The cans I have are 12oz. cans. I have seen 8oz. cans, but even back then, they were hard to come by. IIRC, they only sold them in a few states.

The only pic I have of my collection is this one, which isn't great.

Fox Head Brewing Company.

I can't find any info on these guys except that their former brewery in Waukesha, WI is now a hazardous waste site...

These ads are from 1947 & 1948

Tennessee's Gerst Brewing Co.

Moerlein Gerst Brewing Company- 1890-1893
William Gerst Brewing Company, - 1893-1954

Notice the emphasis on being "all grain" this was at the time that certain well known breweries were using adjuncts in their products....knowhatimean?

Goebel Brewing Company was a brewing company in Detroit, Michigan from 1873 to 1964 eventually acquired late in their existence by Stroh Brewery Company. The beer was locally popular in Detroit from the company's inception, but grew in popularity and was eventually available in many states for a brief period in the 1940's, with an ad campaign in Life magazine that featured restaurant ads from many famous eateries around the country using Goebel beer as an ingredient. The beer, billed as a "light lager", was golden in color, and was noticeably drier than most everyday beers of the era. Their longtime mascot was a bantam, called Brewster Rooster, who wore attire with Goebel's logo, and the beer was a long-time sponsor of Detroit Tigers baseball broadcasts on radio.

In the mid 1960's, Goebel began advertising that their beer was "real" (unpasteurized) draft beer. Normally, bottled and canned beer had to be pasteurized to kill the active yeast left in the beer after brewing was completed, otherwise the buildup of gasses in the bottle would explode them on store shelves, let alone ruining the taste of the beer. This does not affect draft beer, which is kept at refrigerator temperatures from brewery to tap. Goebel's method of achieving this was a bacteria cultivated by the company's chemists that acted specifically on the yeast in the beer, then died harmlessly when the yeast was all consumed. Sales spiked, as people liked the "draft-like" flavor of the beer, but the technique was short-lived, as the bacteria became prevalent everywhere in the brewery, affecting other aspects of the brewing process negatively, and it had to be discontinued. The beer never regained it's previous popularity after that point, exacerbated by the gradual changing of tastes in a new generation of beer drinkers who preferred a lighter, sweeter beer.

I remember Goebel's even in the 1980's when I just was barely old enough to drink. And the joke about it was that it made everyone fart. Now that I have an understanding about yeast farts and it's relationship with "living" beers like homebrews, I can now see why. I remember being in an elevator to a skyscraper in Chicago during a college radio conference with a bunch of kids from my station, after we had consumed several bottles of that stuff. It was a nasty gassy ride.

1942





Through the mid 40's the beer ads began to include recipes from major hotels and resorts...evidently to show how Goebel's was a classy, gourmet beer.
