Weddings at WEST
A Wedding Venue with a difference...
WEST is situated in the old Winding House of the former Templeton’s Carpet Factory, one of Glasgow’s most unique and historic buildings. Victorian architect Edward Leiper designed and modelled this majestic building on the Doge’s Palace in Venice and its stunning and imposing façade commands a mighty presence overlooking the People’s Palace on Glasgow Green, making it one of the city’s most iconic edifices. During its recent renovation, WEST sympathetically preserved the cultural history of this wonderful building, whilst bringing some real industry back to where it belongs. The brewery opened on the 10th of March 2006 and is undoubtedly Scotland’s most exciting and innovative brewery. Indeed, it is the only brewery in the UK to brew all of its beers in strict accordance with the Reinheitsgebot – the German purity law, which means no additives or preservatives are added to any beer. WEST is a full production brewery capable of brewing 1.5 million litres of beer a year, most of which is distributed across the UK to other discerning establishments. Downstairs houses all the fermentation, storage and technical equipment to enable WEST to brew the best and freshest beer possible. The magnificent mahogany panelling complemented by the beautiful large windows on the upper floor create a spectacular setting for your wedding celebration.
What other people say "The WEST staff really were so personable, it was more like having friends helping us out on the day. It's so nice to work with a venue where the owner and staff feel passionate about what they do.....Thanks so much for making our day the success it was.â€?
Lucinda and Louise - May 2008
"From the first moment we walked in, Petra and her team were welcoming and warm, like the venue itself. We were able to discuss our needs and they were met ably at every stage of the process. On the day itself, the food and attention to detail was first class. All our guests had an enjoyable and memorable experience on our special day at a special place. We could not recommend the unique, personal and friendly efforts of Petra and all at the brewery highly enough.â€?
Ruth & Peter - Dec 2008
Give your guests a warm reception... The brewery was granted a wedding licence in 2007 and couples can celebrate
their entire day in this magnificent building which still captures the essence of a
bygone era with its panoramic views. For the wedding ceremony itself, you can opt for the intimacy of The Hop Room, which is licensed for 60 guests, or the
main hall offers a stunning setting for the service for parties of up to 100 guests,
with the entire brewery comfortably accommodating up to 300 people for a lavish reception.
Organising your big day can of course be a stressful affair, but brewery owner, Petra Wetzel, also offers the complete wedding package which incorporates everything from spectacular floral decorations and personalised menus to organising photographers and entertainment to put that extra sparkle into your celebrations. She will work with you every step of the way to ensure your special day is a marriage made in heaven!
Our menus WEST isnâ€™t just about brewing beer. We have enjoyed rave reviews for our cuisine
and service. Our team of chefs have a wealth of experience catering for small and grand scale events and pride themselves in their flexible approach to creating innovative wedding menus to tantalise and impress your guests!

For a taster of whatâ€™s to come, peruse the sample menus included in the insert of this brochure which are bursting with inspirational ideas.
Drinks WEST is a unique Scottish brewery that produces a full range of premium Bavarian-style beers in accordance with the Reinheitsgebot, the German purity law. We use wonderfully pure West of Scotland water and German malt, noble hops and yeast to produce our fine lagers and wheat beers. In addition to our own draught beers, we sell a wide selection of bottled beers from all over the world. If you have a favourite bottled beer from that special holiday with your loved one, we will try our very best to source it for your big day! Our wine list is an eclectic mix of old favourites and new discoveries. We believe that a wine list doesn't have to be expensive to be exquisite and we are very lucky to have had assistance from Pieter Rosenthal of Cork & Bottle in putting together something for everyone's taste whilst ensuring that little bit of "something extra special" that makes us unique. For those in search of a bit of "spirit", our WEST bar stocks a full range of whiskies, vodkas etc and our bar team has come up with some special wedding cocktails in the past! Ordinarily, we have shied away from putting together "standard drinks packages" because we don't believe that any wedding is like the previous one.
