From Beethoven to currywurst, Germany has contributed many great things to civilisation and is renowned for the passion, skill and dedication they have for making exquisite beer.
Take a peek behind the scenes of a brewing success story with this Big Deal from WEST on The Green.
Brewing all their beers in strict accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516, this gorgeous micro-brewery has been wowing customers with great German beer and food since 2006.
Tour and festive meal
Available Monday to Thursday evenings, this offer is for one person to have a guided group tour of the brewery, followed by a two course festive meal from a set menu in the bar and restaurant.
During your detailed 45 minute journey through the state-of-the-art microbrewery, the guide will talk you through the ingredients; the German Purity Law that WEST follows and the brewing production processes.
Tours conclude with a fifteen minute tutored tasting session, made up of 2 half pints of the tour guides choice.
Finally, your group will enjoy a starter and main course from a set menu in the bar and restaurant.
