The concept of The Fallen Brewery was born out of co-owner Nathan Manese's military service with the 160th SOAR and the desire to pay respects to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Our brewery has also been built to honor the men and women who serve our country and the communities we live in. It is a place for family, friends, and strangers to become friends. Our long, Viking style tables inside our brewery are designed to encourage conversation and to sit among people you may not know. The dream of this brewery began in 2013 and has been a passion project to bring it to fruition since 2018. Our brewery will focus on clean, classic style brews up front and work towards adding specialty brews as we grow. We won't sacrifice quality or consistency for the sake of having another brew on tap.
The brewery is owned and operated by Nathan and Heather Manese. Nate has experience working as a volunteer firefighter before joining the military. He medically retired from the military in 2018 and immediately shifted focus to fulfilling his dream of opening the brewery. Nate began creating his own homebrew recipes over 12 years ago and has perfected them over time. Heather earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, has a history in marketing, and over ten years experience as a freelance writer. She has been homebrewing alongside Nate for the past few years and creates recipes for brews that you will also find in the brewery. Together, they also own and operate The Grog Home Brewing Supplies; Clarksville’s only homebrew shop, which is located on the other side of the brewery. They are parents to five children who keep them exceptionally busy but always remain the top priorities in their lives.
"We are proud that each of our beers has a special meaning and name behind it that reflects the importance of family and patriotism in our lives. We do what we do with the support from people like you. So let's raise our glasses, remember the fallen, and cheers to freedom. Every Day, We Remember."
Our brewery is family friendly! We welcome families to come enjoy the lively atmosphere we have to offer. We have board games, card games, and a custom set of corn hole boards for everyone to use. We also have non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase. We just give a friendly reminder that children must be supervised at all times during your visit to the brewery.
Dogs are welcome to come hang out, too! We ask that dogs are kept on leashes at all times and please clean up after them. We love dogs as much as everyone else. We just ask you to please be mindful of other guests in the brewery.
Our goal is to support local by inviting food trucks to be with us on certain nights of the week. Please check our Food Truck Schedule link at the top of the page. While it may not be possible every week to have a food truck on site, guests are always welcome to bring in their own food or have food delivered to enjoy at the brewery.
Our original business plan (first created in 2014) was founded on the premise of giving back to our community by donating a portion of proceeds to various hand picked organizations. We will share more information on that in the coming weeks.

Our Current Tap List as of 4/8/2022
First In, Last Out. Our hefeweizen is a respectful nod to fearless firefighters everywhere. We are proud to serve a hefeweizen that is a true German style recipe. It has been perfected over the years to bring that beautiful balance of banana and clove that you would expect from a true hefeweizen. It is also served in a traditional wheat beer vase. FILO can be served from the tap or traditionally from a properly poured bottle.
Our brewery is a 160th SOAR(A) Veteran Owned establishment and this beer is named in honor of that Regiment. This brew has a subtle sweetness and chocolate notes that balance perfectly with light roasted notes in the background. It is a medium body beer you can enjoy year round.
Our brewery is a proud representation and reflection of what is important to us. One of those being the importance of family. This brew is a Mexican style inspired light amber. It features light hints of caramel and a light lime flavor. It is named in honor of the grandfather of our co-owner, Heather. He was a hard working man who enjoyed a nice, cold beer at the end of a long day. He passed away in 2018 and this beer was created in his memory shortly after.
Our house ale is designed to be that easy drinking brew. Perfect for those who want a lighter beer but not light on flavor. Whether you're enjoying it on a hot summer day or on a crisp, cold day, it can be your go-to brew that you want to have. Light citrus notes balance with a malt background to make this a well rounded beer everyone is sure to enjoy.
This wheat base beer has a subtle yet refreshing blackberry flavor that will make you want more. Light on the ABV but not on flavor. The fruited wheat beer will stick around but the flavor will rotate through the year. This has quickly become a best seller.
This batch hits more along the NEIPA style with a subtle bitterness up front. Dank, musky, and tropical fruit from copious amounts of Galaxy, African Queen, Southern Passion, and experimental hops notes hit both in aroma and flavor. Truly hazy in appearance, this IPA version hits slower to our Midwest IPA marks we were going for. Try it today and let us know what you think.
