A large brewpub with a German theme and the feel of a Munich beer hall. It’s at one end of a very impressive old carpet factory building close to the People’s Palace. There are sacks of Bamberg malt in evidence, a private dining room, what appeared to be a stammtisch for a group of elderly chaps and a food menu filled with wurst, pretzels and the like. There were eight draught beers, mainly German in style and / or name, plus bottles.

I’d like to come back to this place on a weekend. Went on a week night in Dec ’15. There was a quiz on but it was pretty sparsely attended. Only a couple of other customers, so it exagerated how big the place is. You could almost hear the echos! Deceng enough beers and well laid out. Seemed to take a long time to walk there in the could, though. Out on a leg, which perhaps explains the lack of customers?
Visited on Friday 19th Feb 2016. It’s a huge old factory location about 10 mins trudge through the pouring Glasgow rain from Bridgeton station. A German theme to the place, which matches the beers on offer. Thirds were available so tried a sample of a few beers having seen a couple of keg offerings around Glasgow. Beer was decent enough, had a couple of specials on with low numbers of rates. Place was popular but stood at the bar and got served quickly.
It’s a lovely venue, beer is OK. I’d go back but wouldn’t be my first choice. It’s not far from Drygate though which is handy!
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.
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.
