The company's trademark was a crown.
Amongst the beers produced by the firm were: Nut Brown Ale, Pale Ale, and Sparkling Pale Ale.
The business interests of the company were acquired through the incorporation of Gillespie, Sons & Co Ltd in 1895.
The Crown Brewery in Glasgow was designed by the well regarded brewery architect Peter Lyle Henderson.
The site is now occupied by a modern housing development.
The site has since been cleared, and is now used for car parking.
