|The Kentucky New Era, March 16, 1970|
The original Falls City Brewing Company, which operated from 1905 to 1978 before being sold to Heileman Brewing Co., is unique for a few things:
- it wasn't family owned
- it was the first brewery to use the Sta-Tab can
- it produced the infamous Billy Beer.
The irony of the Billy Beer brand was lost on the man himself as President carter's brother admittedly was a drinker of Pabst.
