Named after the patron saint of Glasgow and fellow brewer, this is our flagship Premium lager. St. Mungo is a traditional Bavarian ‘Helles’ lager, which makes for a complex yet very drinkable beer. Its natural carbonation and firm crisp taste perfectly counters its malty body.

With all the balanced flavours of a traditional crisp, clean German lager, WEST 4 is light in colour and body. It strikes the perfect balance between malty sweet and bitter hop flavours to deliver an easy-drinking lager with a refreshing zesty finish.
This Bavarian-style wheat beer is an homage to WEST founder Petra Wetzel’s childhood in Franconia (and also the name of the original brewery dog!) Brewed with 64% malted wheat, our Heidi-Weisse is a complex and refreshing beer of low bitterness and with top notes of clove and banana. Finished in a traditional unfiltered style, it is a great accompaniment to sweet and savoury foods, or the perfect fruity refreshment on a sunny afternoon.
Brewed to our own unique recipe, this Munich style red lager uses a high proportion of toasted malted barley, which gives the beer its unique colour, smooth and creamy body, and sweet biscuity flavour. This is a lager that may convert even the staunchest ale aficionado.
Like IPAs and their American counterparts, our German Pale Ale (A.K.A. “Koelsch” in its native Cologne) is light with a hoppy finish. It is made with both malted barley and wheat and is strongly hopped with American Chinook and Hallertau Mittelfrüh hops, which perfectly complement its dry biscuity finish.
With a smooth dark body and creamy long lasting head, WEST’s first stout sits like a pint of fresh espresso. With a fudgy aroma and bold smoky flavours reminiscent of a French roast coffee, WEST Black is one to take time over and notice the flavour profile change as the temperature slowly increases in the glass.
