Media Release: Petra and her bitch invite fellow dog-lovers to head WEST and sniff around their brewery on Glasgow Green

PETRA Wetzel of WEST and her bitch, Heidi, have issued an invitation to fellow dog-lovers to come and sniff around their brewery, bar and restaurant.

Priding itself on being one of the dog-friendliest breweries in the world, WEST is located in the iconic Templeton Building at Glasgow Green, a favoured haunt of dog walkers.

The brewery has a large beer garden, which is a popular stopping off point for dogs and their owners seeking refreshment and sustenance after a stimulating walk.

Ms Wetzel said: “Our proximity to the park has meant that WEST has been adopted by families with children and pets that come in after enjoying a breath of fresh air and a bout of exercise in the Green to sample our food and beers, safe in the knowledge that they’ll receive a hearty welcome.

“Not all bars and restaurants can claim to be child-friendly, let alone dog-friendly, but, given our location, we’d have to be barking mad not to look after our core clientele!

“That’s why dogs on a lead are more than welcome to come into WEST with their owners. We are a dog friendly place and provide dog biscuits and water bowls. My own pet Heidi is an eight year old golden retriever who has adopted the brewery as her own but is always pleased to meet new four-legged friends!”

Families flocking to WEST with their pets in tow can sample a selection of beers, from cool, crisp lagers, through to clean-tasting wheat beers and a full range of unique and seasonal styles brewed on the premises. And WEST’s approach to food reflects its brewing ethos, taking the very best natural ingredients and preparing them purely and simply, incorporating the natural produce of Scotland with an individual perspective on German and European food styles.

WEST brews the only beers in the UK to meet the Reinheitsgebot of 1516 (The German Purity Law, the oldest food law in the world which ensures only the finest, purest beer is deemed fit for consumption).

WEST brewery, bar & restaurant is open seven days a week, 11am till 11pm Sunday to Thursday and 11am to midnight Friday and Saturday. Brewery tours are available by arrangement.
