Generally when you're invited to a brewery, of course you're going to say yes. When it's the Wellpark brewery and they are launching their new and improved visitor centre you definitely say yes. Wellpark is a piece of Strathclyde history, up there with the John Brown's yard or Ravenscraig.
When you have 500 odd years of brewing experience to choose from the choice of what to put in a visitor centre is pretty extensive, especially when one of the products is the unmistakable indomitable Tennent's Lager. First brewed at Wellpark in 1885 this “madman's dream” has such a characterful history you can see why it was put front and centre.
The Tennent's Story is full of interesting exhibits which will resonate with many. See which of the retro beer cans you remember drinki… ummm your mum or dad drinking from over the years, or watch as decades worth of old Tennent's TV adverts show on the big screen, some more politically correct than others! Then there's the fun to be had at the table football or the 8 bit arcade game, with the tin of beer ceiling above.
You can book on to a tour of the brewery as well if you want to, pick up some quality merchandise and enjoy a pint direct from the tank. There's loads to see and do in this beer themed attraction so head to their website http://www.tennentstours.com for more details.
