WEST On The Green
Why drink beer in a pub when you can go straight to the source? West, ironically in the East End of Glasgow, is a beer hall, restaurant and brewery in the stunning Templeton Carpet factory building. One of Glasgow's most protected buildings, the Victorian masterpiece was modelled on Doge's Palace in Venice and within its walls carpets were created for the Taj Mahal, The White House and the Houses of Parliament. Lovingly restored, the beer hall, which overlooks some of the brewhouse, marries modern elements with the beauty of the building, open plan, with exposed ventilation, light pours in through the massive windows, but dark solid woods and original flooring create a warmth and cosy feel too.
The crowd here are a blend of tourists and beer buffs, while others come for something a little different, great surroundings or pleasant banter. WEST takes its brewing methods from the German masters and this influence spreads through the bar too, with beer served in tankards and available by the litre. WEST's most famous brew, St Mungo, flows freely, as do their other creations, Munich Red, GPA and Heidi-Weisse to name a few, along with external crafts and your usual selection of spirits and wines. Food is a beautiful blend of German and Scottish fare with currywurst and schnitzel sitting nicely alongside Scottish salmon, classics like burgers and good ol' fish & chips. The extensive beer garden outside overlooking Glasgow Green makes this the perfect lazy day spot when the sun shines.

In 2006 we launched the stunning WEST Courtyard, an inspired space that incorporates the industrial grandeur of a full production brewery with the finesse and style of a premier events suite. The main feature of the room is the 15-foot high glass wall that acts as a viewing gallery into WEST's state-of-the-art brewery below. A spectacular backdrop to any event, the viewing gallery will provide a focal point for the room and will showcase the existing unique architecture of this Grade A listed building.
