WEST was founded on a vision to brew the best beer in the UK. After several years of careful planning, they opened their doors on the 10th of March 2006, having built one of the UK’s most advanced small breweries amidst the Victorian grandeur of the famous Templeton Carpet Factory.
West combined tradition and modern design in creating a truly unique space both for staff and for visitors. They also combine tradition and innovation every time they brew, by fusing the tradition and techniques of the great German breweries with the cutting-edge technologies they employ, alongside some Scottish ingenuity.
Imported from Germany, their brewery offers true cutting-edge technology enabling them to produce beers of the most exacting quality and consistency. From the high copper chimneys through to the fully-automated control system, they mix time-honoured tradition and modern innovation. WEST is the ﬁrst UK brewery to produce
all of its beers in accordance with the Reinheitsgebot, known as the German Purity Law. This means that they only use the four core ingredients, water, malt,
hops and yeast in brewing all of their beers, adding no artiﬁcial additives,colouring or preservatives.
You can actually look down into the brewhouse from the beer hall above and watch the brewers at work.
