Falling Down Beer Co., a microbrewery and restaurant in Warren, will open a taproom and microbrewery in downtown Oxford by the end of the year.
“We have had a great year and we are struggling to keep up with the demand of our core products,” says Mark Larson, co-founder of Falling Down Beer Co.
The 4,800 square foot facility, at 14 N. Washington St. in Oxford, will allow for the production of about 2,000 barrels of beer a year. The microbrewery also has plans to produce wine and spirits.
The 60-seat taproom will have about 30 taps, and while there’s no kitchen, Falling Down has plans to partner with local restaurants to bring food into the space.
Larson says Falling Down offers craft beers such as the Ninja Chicken, a pale ale with “a light aroma of caramel and hops (that) slowly roundhouse kick you in the face with your first sip,” as well as Rye My Donkey and Suburban Home IPA.
