First opened in 1856, this busy Victorian railway station played an important part in Stirlingshire’s rich rural heritage. One of many stations on the Forth & Clyde Line, it was the routes second busiest stop, due to two creameries, a sandstone quarry and the Boquhan Brick & Tile Works using it as their main route to Glasgow, and two nearby country houses receiving visitors throughout the year. Although closed in 1934, its industrial legacy continues today as Fallen Brewing Co.
Living and working in such an inspirational setting makes us very aware of the natural environment around us – from our back door we can see the peaks of Ben Lomond, Ben Ledi, Ben Venue, Ben Vorlich and Stuc a’ Chroin. We run our brewery using electricity from 100% renewable sources (via Good Energy), all our waste malt goes to local farmers for cattle feed, and waste hops are composted for the garden.
