Scottish breweries in 1869

September has gone, but Scotland's still hanging around like a drunk who's forgotten the way home. I'm having too much fun with this theme to stop now. And I've just invested in a book about brewing in Alloa. May as well put it to use.

Time for another map. Just three decades later than the last one, but you'll notice a few changes. In particular, how the brewing industry was increasingly concentrated in a few towns in central Scotland and the East coast. Take a look:

Not all breweries are included, but those that are missing are extremely small - ones brewing fewer than 100 barrels a year.

Want all those breweries in handy table form? Here you go:
