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.

Fantastic!!

Alisdair was a terrific guide! He took all the time to answer all of our questions and provided us with such an interesting history of Glasgow, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him and the beer was delicious!! Certainly worth the time and would recommend to anyone who would like a glimpse into Glasgow’s history and to enjoy some beer you e most certainly never tried before. We learned all kinds of new things about how beer is made and what goes into it.
