About McEwan’s 80/- by McEwan's Brewery

The heavyweight hero.

When William McEwan founded his brewery at Fountainbridge in Edinburgh in 1856, this 80/- (‘eighty shilling’) was one of the first beers he produced. It was the beer of choice for McEwan’s brewery workers and at one time the local pub sold almost nothing else! Its classic full flavour is still much loved at home and abroad.

This traditional Scottish premium ale is also known as ‘Heavy’ and when it comes to taste it certainly packs a powerful punch.


Meet a family of remarkable characters. McEwan’s is a family of beers that have been enjoyed for generations since 1856.
