Today is the birthday of George Younger (August 19, 1790-September 25, 1853). He was the son of James Younger and the grandson of George Younger, who founded the brewery that would become George Younger and Son in 1764. It was located in Alloa, Clackmannanshire, in Scotland. There’s surprisingly little information about this George Younger. His father, James, expanded the brewery, and presumably, this George kept it going but there’s almost no details about him or his life that I could find.
Here’s his Meadow Brewery around 1890, before it became known as George Younger & Sons.
Ron Pattinson has a post about Boiling at George Younger in the 1890’s, and also about the early years of George Younger.
