The Falstaff Brewery hasn’t been a brewery in a long time.  It’s now apartments.

When I first moved here the sign wasn’t in operation, so it’s nice to see it shining over Broad Street again.

Apparently back in the old days, the colored ball at the top of the sign changed color according to the weather report.  And this online article claims that it’s back up and running and tells what different colors mean.  Green means fair weather.

Great to see this landmark sign restored to its former glory!

  1. Haven’t had a Falsaff in many, many, years (not in Michigan anymore). I found a object in a beer once and sent it to the company. I had a case of Falstaff delivered to my door. Now that’s customer service! Nice picture.
