Adhering strictly to traditional German brewing methods, West Beer Brewery is renowned for its range of authentic beers, made from pure ingredients to satisfy the staunchest of stout-drinkers. Boasting malt in the mouth flavour and full-bodied creations such as the Munich Red, carrying caramel notes to tantalise taste buds, patrons are invited to sample quality German-food and brewing excellence in abundance.
Participants will begin the 45-minute brewery tour with information on West's traditional German brewing methods, gaining a unique insight into the hallowed ingredients comprising different brews. Learning is delightfully interspersed with four sample beer tastings to refine palates and quench thirsts. Signature beers include the Oktoberfest (ABV 4.6%), boasting a complex blend of German hops, and Dunkel (ABV 4.9%), a unique mix of five different malts. Per voucher redemption, long-time beer-lovers and converted connoisseurs alike can take away a satisfying memento with a case of St Mungos lager (ABV 4.9%), created in honour of Glasgow's beer-brewing patron saint.
Housed in the ornate former Templeton carpet factory on Glasgow Green, the West is the only UK brewer to follow the fastidious German Purity Laws of 1516. From the sunny, airy bar, peer down at the copper chimneys and watch the men in white coats work their magic.
