Abstract

Examines the development of brewing, capital and entrepreneurship in a period of sustained expansion of the drink industries. Shows the main sources of finance were partnerships of merchants, bankers, lawyers, land owners and farmers, hence linking urban and landed enterprise, as in England and Ireland, a continuing feature of the drink industries. While there were many smaller enterprises large-scale breweries dominated urban markets in major centres of the industry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Alloa, Falkirk, among others. Mainly serving local markets Scottish brewers were also successful in English and overseas enterprise.
