One of the oldest names in Scottish beer celebrated its 160th anniversary in style last week as guests gathered at Edinburgh events space The Caves to raise a glass to McEwan’s.
Guests at the event were offered the chance to sample from the full McEwan’s range as well as enjoy a hog roast dinner and live music.
Edinburgh was selected for the birthday celebrations as the spiritual home of McEwan’s – the first pint of the beer is said to have been brewed by William McEwan at his Fountain Brewery founded in 1856.
The McEwan’s birthday bash forms part of a programme of anniversary-related events and giveaways organised by parent firm Charles Wells.
Acquiring the brand in 2011, Charles Wells has since expanded the McEwan’s range with the launch of a number of ales including IPA, Signature and Amber.
