OK it’s Christmas Eve, we hate to be that guy but if you’re buying Christmas presents today then you’re cutting it a little bit fine.

This guided tour takes you the home of Scotland’s favourite pint, not only is it perfect for lager lovers but it’s also great for anyone interested in the history of such an iconic brand or even anyone who likes to try different things. How often do you get to visit a brewery!


Wellpark Brewery in Glasgow is home to more than 450 years of brewing tradition, with this unique experience you’ll enjoy a behind the scenes look at what makes Tennent’s so special. You’ll discover the very origins of brewing and production processes that have been used for centuries to present day and get a hands on insight into how the good stuff is made!



It’s not all about the lager though, the tour also looks at the rich heritage of the Tennent’s brand and its influence on Scottish culture, especially with Scottish music and football. There’s also a rare collection of vintage and retro Tennent’s packaging, there’s even screenings of some of the best Tennent’s adverts from over the decades.
