Located in the iconic Templeton Building in the heart of Glasgow Green, WEST brew all of our artisan lagers and ales in strict accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516. The law prescribes that we can only use WATER, MALT, HOPS & YEAST – that’s it! There are no added colours, chemicals, stabilisers, preservatives or flavouring agents. The only additive is the time and passion required to craft the perfect pint!
Founded in 2006 by Bavaria born Petra Wetzel who first moved to Scotland to study at the University of Glasgow, the growth of WEST has been staggering. What started as a quirky wee brewery making beer to serve only its adjacent beerhall is now producing 25,000 hectolitres a year and supplying beer to over 3000 outlets across Scotland and beyond’.
