Shilling Brewing Co to open their doors this Friday 10th June
Transforming the historic Bank of Scotland building on the corner of West George Street in Glasgow’s city centre, Shilling Brewing Co are the latest to join the craft beer invasion of Glasgow.
The bar seats up to 160 people and alongside the beer made by one of our favourite brewers, Declan (ex Clockwork), Shilling Brewing Co. will also serve pizzas
Award-winning interior design and architecture practice Jestico + Whiles has worked to carefully reveal the original interiors, and have overlaid features that resonate with the building’s rich history. Commissioned artworks reference Scotland’s heraldic symbols and include a 20 ft high mural of a unicorn by local artist Gaz Mackay.
Head Brewer Declan McCaffrey, who has an BSc in Brewing & Distilling from Heriot-Watt University and has worked in several breweries across the UK, said:
“Glasgow has been pioneering the perfect pint for over 400 years and at Shilling Brewing Co. we have tapped into that heritage with our core range of four craft beers.
We have something for everyone from our bright, hop-forward Unicorn IPA named after Scotland’s national animal, our pint for the Clydesider in a classic Glasgow Red Ale, The Steamie blonde which is our nod to the bittersweet nostalgic history of Glasgow and our Full-On Nettle Racket which is our first small-batch rotational brew with a stinging scream of locally foraged nettles from Queens’ Park – no dock leaves required.”
Looking forward to trying this one out, cheers!
