Opened in 1856 as William McEwan & Co, this brewery merged with William Youngers & Co. Ltd in 1931 to form Scottish Brewers Ltd. This in turn in 1960 merged with Newcastle Breweries to form Scottish & Newcastle PLC. Now under the ownership of Scottish Courage Limited, this plant now only brews keg beers mainly for the Scottish market. The brewery closed at the end of 2004.
