The Brewery Triangle
Glasgow is a perfect city to visit if you're a lover of whisky, distilleries, and breweries - the city even has a "Brewery Triangle" that takes both established and newer brands on the scene. Here's a look at what you can expect:
The world famous Tennent's is brewed in the city's east end, very close to the city centre. Visit Wellpark Brewery for a tour to take in 450 years of brewing tradition, and the fascinating development and local love for the Tennent's brand over the years.
The tour provides a fascinating insight into one of Glasgow's oldest businesses and of course, you'll receive a nice refreshing pint of Tennent's at the end too!
As the first experiential brewery in Scotland, there's plenty to discover on a tour of Drygate. Take a look inside the inner workings of the brewery and get a taste of Drygate's core range with experts on hand to guide you. There's also lots of other events on in the brewery too, from live comedy to a market full of local traders. And once you've had your fill, take a walk up the nearby Necropolis and Glasgow Cathedral for some beautiful scenery.
Based in the famous Templeton Building on Glasgow Green, WEST Brewery has established itself as one of the city's great pubs and most recently won Scotland's Pub of the Year at the Pub & Bar Awards in 2016!
Tours of the brewery take place at the weekend and covers the obligatory tasting session too. With all of their beers brewed strictly in accordance with the 1516 Reinheitsgebot, the ancient German Purity Law, it makes for a beer that you won't forget in a hurry.

Located just 40 minutes from Glasgow, Glengoyne Distillery is not just great for whisky lovers, but it's a feast for the eyes to, being situated in a beautiful area. The scenery fits in perfectly with the distillery's ethos of distilling the whisky much more slowly than normal to create that special taste. Get yourself on a distillery tour and don't miss the whisky and chocolate matching too for an extra treat for your tastebuds.
