Fowler's Real Ales & honouring John Fowler & Company

Real ale is being brewed in Prestonpans - and its available at The Prestoungrange Gothenburg in the James Fewell and Lord Mayor's Bars. Take home sales are available in the Jug Bar until 10pm.

Brewing takes place in Fowler's own microbrewery at The Prestoungrange Gothenburg. It is a very significant initiative from the Baron Courts of Prestoungrange & Dolphinstoun and is wholly designed to honour the traditions of John Fowler & Company from 1745 - 1962 in Prestonpans. In every way possible Fowler's Ales (Prestoungrange) Limited - today's brewers - seek to reflect the town's brewing heritage but the enterprise itself and our recipes are not the originals, although registered marks still exist in their own independent right for the Wee Heavy and 90/ Pale Ale. John Fowler & Company went into liquidation in 1969.

The full story as it is known is available as Prestoungrange Historical Booklet No. 12
