I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the place and all of the different things they do in the Tennent's Training Academy. We had fun at the end in the T Bar. The tour guide was fantastic.

Staff were knowledgable, engaging & great fun with head chef Michael helping us to cook up a storm before Laura shared her expertise on cocktails & got everyone up making their own. Would... More

This was a really enjoyable night out, informative, fun and the food we made was fab. Michael Kilkie is an excellent instructor, he had the perfect balance between serious and fun, lots of good recipes and cooking tips: The Thai food we learned to make was great and really tasty.

Had a great visit guided by the lovely Linda, she certainly knows her subject and put it across professionally with a hint of good old Glasgow humour, very much appreciated by "The Grumpy Slumpers", a group of seven retired concrete technologists. The brewery is automation on a big scale but history showed what an important service it paid to its... More
