What is your name?
What is your quest?
What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Those are questions I wish I had asked Brian Hampton, Monty Python-enthusiast and owner of the medieval-themed Floyd County Brewing Company of New Albany, Indiana. While visiting, we discuss the European influences of his brewpub and talk about the challenges of operating a restaurant while maintaining quality of the beer. Food, froth, and follies all around at this fun destination.

After, I get a history lesson from the president of the historic Falls City Brewing Company, Shane Uttich. Shane tells the story of the rise, fall, and redemption of “Louisville’s Original Craft Beer.” We go back to 1905 and hit on pre-prohibition topics and the Kentucky Common. In the new era, by 2018, the brewery plans on bringing 100% of its brewing operations back to Falls City. You’ll want to stick around for the end of the interview, as Shane announces a new product release.
If you know of a brewery with an interesting origin story or background, or if you have a brewery and think you have a story to share, I’d be more than willing to learn more about it! Please reach out to me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
As always, I would be grateful if you subscribed to Building Breweries on iTunes and left me a rating/review. It would go a long way in helping me grow and attract other breweries.
Thank you for listening!
In each episode of Building Breweries, Michael Moeller speaks with a new brewery representative, from establishments of all sizes, about their origin as a brewery and other Beverage Industry issues, ranging from wholesaling to state regulations. This is Michael’s first podcast project.
