FEATURE: Peachy Brew Launched With the Appointment of Fallen’s New Lead Brewer
Our friends at Fallen Brewing, the craft brewery in the old Kippen railway station, has launched a 5.4% (ABV) Peaches and Cream Pale Ale designed and brewed by new Lead Brewer, Jamie Lockhart.
Formerly of Williams Bros, Lockhart has a degree in brewing and distilling from Heriot Watt and has been brewing beers for six years. He will be taking over the day to day brewing of the Fallen Brewing range comprising eight core craft beers, with responsibility for a further 16 special brews including his first creation a Peaches and Cream Pale Ale at 5.4% ABV.
Owner and MD Paul Fallen comments, “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.”
“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 and 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.” Says Jamie Lockhart, Lead Brewer at Fallen Brewing.
Glasgow Theatre Blog had the chance to do a bit of reviewing of the new brew.
This cloudy ale poured with a good head, it has a gentle fruity aroma as befitting its peaches and cream origins, this is a smooth, easy drink with a pleasant, full, lingering aftertaste. Highly recommended.
The Peaches and Cream Pale Ale will be called Southbound, in line with Fallen Brewing’s railway station theme inspired by its location in the Old Kippen Brewery. And the reason it is south bound is that peaches and cream is a traditional dessert in the southern states of America.
It will be available in keg and cans, RRP from £2.80 for 330ml from independent stockists and off-licences across Scotland and the North of England, and online. For a full range of Stockists visit: http://www.fallenbrewing.co.uk/findourbeer/
