Abstract

he Brewers and Breweries of Fife is the third book in the Brewers and Breweries of Scotland series. In this book you will discover why Anstruther was thought to be the most drunken town on the Fife coast, about Cupar’s own Mitchell brothers, and learn about illicit distilling in Dunfermline. The book is arranged in two parts. Part one provides a listing by town, with biographical information of the brewers known to have been active in the historic county of Fife. Part two provides descriptions of the major breweries and brewing companies, past and present. Original research has generated information and illustrations about breweries across the county, from Abbotshall to Woodhaven. Brewery historians will find information on brewers, breweries and their beers from 1495 to the present day, and pictures and locations of brewery buildings. Family historians will find over 1,100 references to brewers, their business associates and relations, from Abercrombie to Younger.
