‘Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer’ said American writer, Dave Barry.
Somebody buy that guy a pint.
And if anyone knows a thing or two about beer, it’s Wellpark Brewery – after all, it has been brewing the magic barley juice for nearly 500 years.
Today’s Big Deal for a Brewery Tour and Craft Beer Masterclass at Tennent’s Wellpark is a chance to peek behind-the-scenes while sampling some of the famous tipple.
This would make the perfect birthday gift for the beer lover in your life.
Behind-the-scenes at Tennent’s
Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery in Glasgow is home to more than 450 years of brewing tradition and award-winning beers.
This new tour and masterclass will give you an insider view of what makes Tennent’s so special.
The experience is available on Friday evenings from 3rd August to 30th November. As you can buy multiples, why not make it a night out with friends?
Could this beer magic?
You will arrive at Wellpark Brewery on a Friday evening to begin your 6pm brewery tour.
Your experienced guide will take you on a one-hour access-all-areas tour, where you will learn about the brand’s history, production and processes.
You will even get to take a trip down memory lane to view classic adverts and packaging, plus learn about what Tennent’s is up to nowadays with football and music sponsorship.
This will be followed by a refreshing taste of your favourite T.
Craft Beer Masterclass
After the tour, you will start your two-hour tutored masterclass, led by our resident beer enthusiast, the Wellpark Academy Bar Trainer.
This beer guru will take you on a journey through history as told by the beers and brewers of the world.
You will learn more about different beer styles, their flavours, food pairings, and even the story behind the pint.
With an array of different beer styles to drink, paired with a laidback guided tasting, this Craft Beer Masterclass is suitable for novice beer drinkers and artisan ale fanatics alike.
During the craft beer tasting, you’ll also be provided with some small pairing foods (for example cheeses, charcuterie and chocolate) as part of the experience.
Happy beer fans
The Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery tour has found many enthusiastic fans on TripAdvisor:
‘Boyfriend booked a tour for the two of us whilst visiting Glasgow and it was absolutely fantastic! The tour guide was knowledgeable with a great sense of humour which, accompanied by a free pint and 2 tasters, made a great activity to do!’
‘Had a brilliant tour delivered yesterday by the lovely Gerry. Very informative and good fun. Will highly recommend this tour to friends, especially Glaswegian pals as they don’t know that this wee treasure is on their doorstep.’
‘Went on the Tour yesterday with my big brother and what can I say that hasn’t been said already. It was absolutely brilliant. Our Guide Marco was so knowledgeable, giving us a great insight into the origins of the brand and also telling us loads of cool facts. The icing on the cake was the best pint of Tennent’s I’ve ever had at the end and also the tasters. Would recommend this to anyone, great value for money. Although one thing I would say is wear comfy shoes as there is a lot of stairs and try stand close to the tour guide so you can hear everything, as it does get very noisy in the production areas.’
Let it beer, let it beer
With a chance to peek behind-the-scenes at Tennent’s historic Wellpark Brewery and sample some of the specials as well, this Big Deal is well worth raising a glass to.
So if the beer lover in your life has a birthday coming up, then you know what to do.
