Petra Wetzel 10th anniversaryWEST, celebrates its 10th anniversary

WEST, celebrates its 10th anniversary today with the opening of a new brewery, a new Courtyard wedding venue and an extra special birthday bash featuring none other than 80s pop duo Go West!

We’ll be going along tonight to help celebrate as well as hopefully have a peek at the new brewery.  The Templeton Building beside Glasgow Green is a beautiful building and it’s great to see WEST stay their East End roots and build on their past instead of dashing out to an out-of-town site.  The new brewery multiplies its production capacity ten-fold. The £5million investment in the new facility will enable the  brewer to bottle their beers.

WEST founder Petra Wetzel said: “We’re celebrating our first decade with the opening of new facilities that show the scale of our ambitions to take WEST much further in our second decade.

“Designed in order to allow us to keep pace with growth in market demand for our products, our new brewery will ensure that more customers than ever before will be able to enjoy the unique taste of our product range.

“And our Courtyard incorporates a large dining room with a flexible layout that lends itself to various size gatherings, seating 140 for dinner or a standing reception for 220. It has its own private bar and bathroom facilities as well as the addition of a luxury-bridal-suite-come-green room.” | |
