Massive building in a scenic location. Service not terribly fast. Selection is quite limited which surprised me.

We visited West during the Commonwealth games. It is located within Glasgow green in the rather unusual looking Templeton building. West is a rather large Germanic-styled brew pub & restaurant. When we visited it was massively busy, but I expect this may have been due to the Commonwealth Games. There was 4/5 of their own draught beers on offer and a few bottles. They also offer growler fills for take-away. The beer is German in style so expect lagers/wheat beers etc (decent representations of these styles). Not a beer destination out-right but worth stopping past if you are in the area.

In one corner of Glasgow Green Park, close to the People’s Palace and Winter Garden, this Brewpub popular for both its own concoctions and food is housed in the wonderful Templeton Building. Despite no legal obligation to do so, they brew using the German Reinheitsgebot law and their styles are therefore classically central European, although perhaps not always up to the same standard. It’s an interesting enough place though and the design is like a ’Beer Hall’, although more modern in look so don’t expect a Bavarian atmosphere.

One of the first attempts in the UK to set up a continental style bar, it isn’t too bad and the beer is reasonably bearable.

A spacious brewpub, beer hall like, situated in a huge brick building called Templeton in the Green area in the eastern part of Glasgow, and within walking distance from the city centre. Five of their own beers on offer, brewed according to the so called reinheitsgebot. Good food, I had the Schnitzel Sandwich which had a fresh taste and paired well with the brewpubs German inspired beers. Welcoming and mostly attentive service. Likable place, well worth visiting (visited at lunch time, 13.04.2012).

AN intersting German Brew pu in glasgow with some decent beer. nothing too exciting but still was a decent addition to Scottish beer scene. However they are nor charging more than £1.50 more for 2 halves than the pint price. Irresponsible behaviour. Not ever one want sto drink massive amounts why should they pay almost as much for a half as a pint.

My kind of pub - a brewpub that brews beer to the German purity laws - always find something to tempt me here

A excellent pub, with a decent atmosphere & incredible beer. I tried the Dunkel & the Hefeweizen and both were great. They had four of there own beers on tap plus a wide range of bottled beers from around the world. It was about £3.20 for a pint which is a lot cheaper than I expected & definitely worth it considering you’d pay that in a lot of places around Glasgow. The only down side is that it is a bit away from the centre of town but it would be great during the summer in the beer garden. I am already planning my next visit. abarwithnoname.wordpress.com

This place I find a bit of an enigma. Sophisticated upmarket German style microbrewery in Bridgeton, one of the less salubrious areas of Glasgow. Interesting selection of beers including their own brews. They claim to be the only German style brewery in the UK. Their beer isn’t bad but it is not as good as their German equivalents. They also sell a good number of interesting bottles. Food is very good and you can walk off the calories afterwards on the Glasgow Green which it overlooks. Only downside is the price which at £4 a pint is ridiculously expensive. Been back again. Their beer quality has got very much better and they now claim to distribute it to 60 outlets. Meal was fantastic. Expensive but well worth a visit.

Nice brewing place, they are associated to a German enterprise. A little expensive and boring ambiance but nice view and good beers.
