Caledonian Brewery

1993

Caledonian Brewery is an award winning-brewery, making traditional ale from their old premises beside the railway at Slateford.

Here we look down from a bridge over the railway.  The copper tuns where the beer was brewed were in the tall red brick building on the left of this picture.  The railway siding used to run next to this building.

Coal for heating the tuns was delivered to the base of the tuns from the railway wagons, then it was just a matter of shovelling it into the tuns to heat the hot mash.
