West Brewing Company is a modern microbrewery located at Binnie Place in the former Templeton Carpet Factory near the People's Palace in Glasgow Green. They opened in March of 2006 with the vision of specializing in German style beers brewed in accordance with the Reinheitsgebot or German Purity Law. The brewing plant was imported from Germany and represents the most modern brewing technology.

In the beautifully restored area of the old factory, WEST offers a modern Scottish take on the iconic German beerhall. WEST takes as much pride in its food as it does its beer and offers an extensive menu. The brewhouse can be seen from the main hall and tours are available by arrangement.
