Our entertaining and educational afternoon was hosted by Gerry, who tempered erudition with humour. We learnt about the fascinating history of Hugh, the development of beer into lager, and saw the inside workings of the brewery, from mash to market. It wasn't a tour I would have chosen, but our son is a beer/ale afficionado and it was the one... More

Very welcoming and friendly tour. Really can't fault it tbh. Tennent's cannot compete with the major brewers. It is a small brewery really, but you are taken into the workings of the brewery. You do see the vats and machines. I have been on the Guinness tour, and I must say, this was better. You get the smells and how... More

Good introduction to beer brewing and look round a big industrial brewery. Includes history of Tennant's and a pint of their lager ( alternatives also offered) as well as samples of their new more specialised bottled brews, which was very nice. Guide very knowledgeable ( Drew )

We were given a first rate tour of the Tennent's Wellpark Brewery. We watched clips of old Tennent's advertisements and commercials. There was all kinds of memorabilia to see and read about. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We toured the entire plant and saw their training facility. At the end we had a generous tasting in the company's pub.... More

Marko or Marco, not sure the proper spelling, was an excellent tour guide and made the tour very enjoyable. He is very good at his job. As a Scottish Canadian who drinks tennents at home, this tour was second to none. I had done the Guinness storehouse tour two weeks prior and much preferred the hands on and personal experience...

We're both student so the tour was only a fiver each, which was a super deal for the tour plus the pint and tasters at the end of the tour. We... More

While in Glasgow I took the tour of the tennents factory. At £7.50 thought this was great value and with a complimentary pint at the end it really for nothing. The actual tour was very educational and gave a good understanding of how big and complex the brewery industry is. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and it... More

Walked in to do a tour and were told to go in the next room... went in there but received no service at all. The in guy in that room stayed on the phone for at least 5+ minutes. So we left without a tour or a beer... do better!

We are sorry you were unable to come on one of our brewery tours or try a sample from the bar. The main reception and Tennent’s Visitor Centre are not connected areas per se. Therefore we advise that tour enquiries of any kind are made by contacting ourselves personally within the Visitor Centre. Our phonelines can be quite busy and... More
