Full description
Enjoy a unique walking tour of Glasgow's New Town through the story of William Harley and brewing in Glasgow.

Setting off from the stunning Blythswood Square, you'll discover how Harley arrived as a young labourer before using his entrepreneurial talents to make (and lose) a fortune. It's a story of playing host to worldwide royalty, corporate espionage, civic duty and laying the foundations for Glasgow to become the largest exporter of bottled beer in the world.

Along the way, you'll stop at Glasgow's best beer bars for tutored tastings of Scotland's award winning beers. You'll also be introduced to the raw ingredients and science of brewing and the expert guides will help you discover flavors you'll love.

This tour is for history lovers or beer lovers who'd like to discover the authentic story of Glasgow's development and experience the exciting local craft beer scene.

Tours are limited to 8 people so that your expert local guides can answer all your questions and help you discover your new favourite drink.

You'll be entertained, informed and refreshed!
