Celebrate the 15th Birthday of WEST

Launch of The WEST Brewery Birthday Box

Did you know that WEST opened its doors to Glasgow on the 10th of March 2006? So that makes them 15 years old this year – hasn’t time flown by.  It’s been far too long since we have been to visit the brewery, hopefully, we’ll be able to return soon and get to see the Bavarian beer hall and brewery.

WEST is now getting set to celebrate its 15th Birthday by launching The WEST Brewery Birthday Box – a beerhall dining and beer experience for two. And, if you want to join the fun early, they are celebrating on -10th March with a Facebook Live, beer tasting event.

WEST Brewery founder Petra Wetzel explains, The Beerhall Birthday Box is an authentic Bavarian beerhall dining experience with four classic German dishes – available as a meat, a vegetarian and a vegan option, all accompanied with six of WEST’s top vegan beers. And what makes it special is that £5 from every box go to our local food bank.

“The WEST team racked their brains on how to safely celebrate a big milestone birthday with an appropriate celebration during a pandemic lockdown so executive chef Joanne Munro and head brewer, Simon Roberts put their heads together and came up with The WEST Brewery Birthday Box Beerhall Experience for two!

“1 in 4 children in Glasgow go to bed hungry and 1 in 5 households are living below the poverty line. Our beloved Hospitality industry has been decimated during the lockdown which has put many businesses at the brink of collapse, however we are well aware that many families do not even qualify for the government’s furlough scheme and are struggling on Universal Credit. We therefore wanted to make sure that our Birthday Box celebrations also provide food for many in our immediate neighbourhood. That is why £5 from the price of every Birthday Box will go to the Glasgow North East Food Bank in the Calton.”

Petra reflects “In all my years, I never envisaged celebrating a milestone birthday in a pandemic and I know that we will bounce back once the lockdown restrictions allow us to. I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to welcoming our customers back and that’s why we thought of another birthday celebration – The Golden Ticket! As a special surprise, one of our Birthday Boxes will have a Golden Ticket which is a brewery tour and dinner for four!
