Another company which established itself in Fountainbridge in 1856 was McEwan’s Brewery. The site on the north side of Fountainbridge and Dundee Street was chosen because of its proximity to both the Union Canal and the new line of the Caledonian Railway. Within five years, the firm’s annual turnover was £40,000 and it went on to become one of the market leaders in the Scottish brewing industry over the next century.

Fountain Brewery become part of Scottish Brewers in 1931 after a merger with Youngers who subsequently merged to create Scottish & Newcastle Brewers. In 1973, as a result of a £13 million investment, a new Fountain Brewery was opened on the south side of Fountainbridge on the former site of the North British Rubber Company’s premises while the hose factory was converted to a bottling plant.

The site was home to a social club known as the ‘Tartan Club’. The brewery was modernised, leaving little of the original buildings.
