WEST Brewery opened in March 2006, serving beer made in its Glasgow Green microbrewery to customers in the adjoining beer hall, WEST On The Green. The company West Brewing Company went into administration but was bought back by Wetzel in 2008.
Since its original conception as a German style brewpub, WEST distributes its draught and bottled beers widely throughout the UK. WEST is now available in more than 3,000 outlets in the UK, as well as in packaged format at several major supermarkets.
In 2016, following a decade in business, WEST opened a new £5million brewery, housed in the same premises within the iconic Templeton Building on Glasgow Green. The new brewery brought with it a ten-fold increase in capacity to 25,000 hectolitres a year.
