West Brewery, Glasgow, Scotland, U.K.

“Glaswegian Heart. German Head.” That’s the rallying cry for Glasgow’s West Brewery, which has been producing Scottish beers with a German accent since 2006. Brands include the flagship St. Mungo, which sits at the intersection of a pilsner and a Munich-style Helles, as well West Dunkel, Black premium stout, Munich Red and the Kölsch-inspired G.P.A. Though the brewery in Glasgow’s iconic Templeton building is several hundred miles from the German border, all of its beers adhere to the Reinheitsgebot. This particular shot is from January 2015, so not too much outdoor activity here.

About Jeff Cioletti

I’m Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe marries my two greatest passions: fine drink and travel. The search for the former usually drives the latter. I'm the author of The Year of Drinking Adventurously. When I’m not traveling and drinking— aww, hell, who am I kidding, even when I am—I'm editor-at-large of Beverage World magazine and its companion site, beverageworld.com. I’ve been at Beverage World since January 2003. I’ve been interviewed on beverage-related topics for CNN, Fox Business News, CNBC, Beer Sessions Radio, Canada's ROB TV, NPR, BBC World, BBC Radio, The Associated Press, The New York Post, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, Advertising Age, WCBS-TV and several other media outlets. Beyond the journalism gig, I’m also a filmmaker; I wrote, produced and co-directed the feature film, “Beerituality,” a comedy set in the world of craft beer. The film is available on at http://www.storenvy.com/products/510365-beerituality-dvd and can be streamed and downloaded at amazon.com
