Local Motive was originally brewed for the Cross Keys pub in Kippen, and is described as “Easy drinking but loads of flavour”

Stephen Kerr MP said: I’d like to thank the House of Commons admin team for accepting my request to have Local Motive added to the bar options. Stirling’s microbrewing industry is beginning to take off, and now MPs and staff from across the country will have the opportunity to try this quality beer brewed locally. ”

 A Fallen Brewery rep said: “We hope it goes down well and lubricates some positive discussions.”
