Man Behind The Beer

Billings best craft microbrews at FreeFall Brewery


We would like to announce the newest addition to the Freefall family! 


William “Bill” Coffey will be joining the Freefall Family for the next several months as we take on this exciting adventure together. We are excited to have someone with such a colorful history and so much experience to share with all of us.


Bill started out working with his father when he was just 14 years old in one of the less than 20 Microbreweries in the United States at the time. He became the Head Brewer when he was 18 years old, at that time there were less than 15 states selling the Beer and 6 Countries. In order to gather more knowledge he studied “Fermentation Science” at UC Davis. In 1994 he used his experience to open his own brewery, at the age of 24 it made him the youngest brewery owner at the time. During this time he was also hired by the Chinese Government as a mentor and consultant, he eventually made his way back home and became the Head Quality Controller for Pyramid Brewery. He then went on to become the owner of several breweries. He is currently running a large, independent distillery and in the process of starting a new brewery in California.

Bill is the creator of Red Sky Ale, one of the first Micro Red Ales he plans on recreating the recipe when possible.


The whole Freefall team is extremely excited to have Bill here sharing his experience with our brewers so we can make amazing Microbrews for everyone to come in and try out. We look forward to seeing you!
