New brewer and beer for Fallen

Stirling-based Fallen Brewing has added a canned Peaches & Cream Pale Ale to its range.

The brew, called Southbound, is the first to be created by its new lead brewer Jamie Lockhart.

He was previously with Williams Bros and also has experience with the Alechemy and Daleside breweries and a brewing and distilling degree from Heriot-Watt University.

Owner and managing director Paul Fallen said: “Jamie’s technical brewing knowledge will be a real asset to the team and it frees my time up to be able to focus on other areas of the ever-expanding business.

“Since the installation of our new building and fermenters, and implementation of our new canning line earlier this year, our output has increased significantly, sales are growing week-on-week and it is the right time for Fallen Brewing to bring in a lead brewer to look after daily activities in the brewhouse.”

Lockhart added: “It’s an exciting time to be working at such a dynamic brewery.

“Paul is really committed to creating an interesting range of rich, full-flavoured beers and I’ve been given the go-ahead to add to this range.
“My first brew is a Peaches & Cream Pale made with lactose, vanilla and the peach which goes in during conditioning.
“We used Magnum hops for bittering and Simcoe and Cascade which were added at the end of the boil and during fermentation.”

The 5.4 % abv beer is in keg and cans, with an rrp of £2.80 for the 33cl packaged version.
