Our Story

Falling Knife Brewing Company started in the music venues of the Twin Cities. Recognizing a shared love of music, basketball, and of course, beer, Andy, Tom, and Dan moved from serious conversations amongst friends to a brewery-in-planning in the summer of 2017. After looking at several locations, the ownership team fell in love with the Mid-City neighborhood. Construction on the new space started in late 2018, and we opened our doors in summer 2019.

Falling Knife is a production brewery that features a 20-barrel brewhouse producing incredible beers, and a full-service 149-person taproom. We currently service over 200 bars, restaurants and liquor stores.

“A falling knife has no handle” is something you hear, but hopefully never learn. It’s best to step back, let the knife hit the ground, and pick it up when it rests. Not at Falling Knife Brewing Company. We’re willing to take a risk and get what we want. Even if it means we take a few cuts along the way.
