Famous Since the ‘45

ceased in 1962. The book comes from Prestoungrange University
Press in the Historical Series No. 12, which can be purchased

Ales - Famous Since the ‘45
The end came for Fowler’s when the brewery was acquired
as part of a nationwide pattern of mergers that meant much larger
organisations could take advantage of technology giving massive
economies of scale.
In East Lothian only Belhaven at Dunbar survived to the 21st
Century, and alongside Fowler’s Ales at The Prestoungrange
Gothenburg we are very pleased to be able to offer their ales.
We are also most grateful to them for much assistance as we have
got back into business in the microbrewery and in The Prestoungrange
Gothenburg at large.
