Closure of Caledonian Brewery Announced

On 25th May, Heineken announced their intention to closed the historic Caledonian Brewery in Slateford Road, Edinburgh, with the potential loss of 30 jobs. The brewery, famous for its award-winning Deuchars IPA, has been in existence for more than 150 years, having been established in 1869 by George Lorimer and Robert Clark, and is the last major brewery in the city.

The full story can be found on What's Brewing. CAMRA have also issued a press release on the closure.

CAMRA urges Heineken to enter discussions with all interested parties and find a viable way forward for this historic brewery.
