Come and see for yourself when you visit us at Tennent’s visitor centre.
When Hugh Tennent first brewed our legendary beer back in 1885, he’d hardly have imagined how much of an impact it would have in becoming the biggest beer in the country. We aim to showcase Tennent’s and educate guests when they come through the doors of the Tennent’s visitor centre on how the beer is made, why it’s famous around the world and our journey from then to now.
With this location having a history that goes back over 450 years, you’ll see what makes this specific area of Glasgow so great for brewing beer and how Tennent’s has become ingrained in Scottish culture.
We have a range of tours on offer to give guests something that suits their tastes, ranging from a simple tour of the brewery and a beer masterclass to hopping on a bike to go and see some of Glasgow’s most famous sights or stepping on the pitch at Celtic Park.
