Fallen Brewing Launches Online Shop

At long last, we’ve secured a premises alcohol license for the Brewery. This allows us to sell beer direct to the people who enjoy it the most……. you!

You can now order and pay for Fallen Brews online at www.fallenbrewing.co.uk/shop. All the regular beers will be on there (Local Motive, Odyssey, Grapevine and Chew Chew) and we’ll be sure to keep the site updated with all the specials that we brew throughout the year. At the time of writing we’ve got 10 different beers available including Sleeper Pils (5.2% Pilsner), Amarillo: Centennial (4% West Coast Pale Ale), El Dorado: Waimea (6.6% West Coast IPA) and Dark Territory (9% Belgian Strong Dark Ale). Keep and eye out for new specials and follow us on Facebook (FallenBrewCo) or Twitter (@fallenbrewco) if you want to keep bang up to date.

You can order the beers for home delivery or you can pop in to the Brewery to collect your order, have a chat and a wee look around. Bear in mind though, that we don’t have a shop or a taproom on site, so you’ll need to order and pay for the beer before coming along to the Brewery to collect (Collection hours: Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm). We can’t offer formal tours at the moment but it’s definitely something we’re thinking about so, again, watch this space!

We’re really looking forward to supplying you with beer that we’ve enthusiastically and passionately slaved over. If you’ve got any questions or need help with ordering, just drop us an email at onlineorders@fallenbrewing.co.uk or give us a call on 07500 906924.

Cheers for now

Paul

Rhubarb Lime (and The Woodhouse)

In a recent article in the Sunday Post magazine (21st October), their “Scone Spy” ventured out into Kippen, for the second time.  On his first visit he had chanced upon The Woodhouse and been favourably impressed.  This time he visited Rhubarb Lime, and thoroughly enjoyed his visit – “perfectly scrummy” being one of his comments.  His concluding sentence – “With The Woodhouse and Rhubarb Lime, the little and large of café culture, Kippen is well served for scone scoffing – whatever the weather.”  The full article can be found at https://www.sundaypost.com/fp/rhubarb-and-lime-scone-spy/.

Scone Spy

Well, one of the strange things. The fact it was as toasty as the Med was obviously a bit weird.

But just as strange was the fact that it was settled, steady, reassuringly always there.

It had come to mind as I went for one of those relaxing Sunday drives – because, in typically Scottish fashion, I’d seen the lot.

It had been properly pelting, splendidly sunny, blowing a gale and almost calm, turn the heating down, crank it up.

Go on, make your mind up, weather!

By the time my tum rumbled loudly enough to insist on a food stop, it had turned nice. And, so it has to be said, is Kippen.

It wasn’t your Spy’s first time in this neck of the woods. Last time, it was the impressive Woodhouse Coffee Shop.

It’s big and bustling, and right at a roundabout outside the village on the busy A811.

Rhubarb Lime – don’t you just love the name, by the way? – was a real contrast.

It was wee and cosy and on the village’s main street, a blink and you’d miss it sort of a place if you were driving through.

A couple of things were the same, though. Like the Woodhouse, it was bustling. And there was also more to it.

The Woodhouse has a farm shop which does a brisk trade in butchery and more. In Rhubarb Lime’s case, it’s a delicatessen as well, and there was an impressive selection of wines on display.

But, naturally, it was stopping that tummy rumbling that was the priority and Rhubarb Lime wasn’t about to disappoint.

The counter was full of bell jars with tempting cakes of every variety, the shelves stacked with fruit slices, empire biscuits and more, with giant pink meringues the showstopping stars of the show.

There are just a handful of tables and it’s all cute and quirkily higgledy-piggledly.

After a quick perusal of the impressively extensive menu, my dining companion settled on a warming big bowl of the vegetable broth.

I had the brie, bacon and cranberry toasted ciabatta which came with a side salad and a ramekin of coleslaw.

Both were filling and super tasty. The most important thing as always, though, was the scone. And there was a tempting selection to choose from.

Orange and blueberry, fruit and cherry were the options.

The pick, the orange and blueberry, had a perfectly scrummy mix of both and it was moist and just the right side of crumbly.

Just as warm as our dishes was the welcome. with the staff genuinely interested in where we’d come from and happy to chat.

With the Woodhouse and Rhubarb Lime, the little and large of café culture, Kippen is well served for scone scoffing – whatever the weather.

JudyJamJar Mosaics

Forth Valley Artbeat (Open Studios) celebrated its 9th year in June, with artists and organisations across Central Scotland hosting a variety of events. Kippen had 2 venues this year including JudyJamJar Mosaics. Judy works in her studio at Davarr Cottage and this year shared her venue with local glass artist, Shonah Escombe (ShogieB).

This was Judy’s second year with Artbeat and she was delighted with the increase in visitor numbers including many locals from the village. Her mosaics for home and garden have become increasingly popular and her studio can be visited at other times by arrangement. Both artists also sell their work from stalls at other local events as well as direct.
