Scottish & Newcastle Breweries Ltd were created in 1960 as a result of a merger between:

In July 1986, they acquired Home Brewery Co. Ltd of Daybrook, Nottingham with 447 public houses. They closed Home Brewery in 1996.

They acquired Matthew Brown & Co. Ltd of Blackburn in October 1987 with 550 tied houses. Brewing ceased at Blackburn in 1991.

With the Matthew Brown company, they acquired T & R Theakston Ltd of Masham, North Yorkshire, but sold that brewery back to the Theakston family in 2003.

In 1995, they acquired the brewing operations of Courage & Co. Ltd from the Australian brewers Fosters.

The new company traded as Scottish Courage.
