05 Dec ‘Tis the most wonderful time of the year!
It may be cold out, but we’re feeling cheerful in our little corner of Bavaria as we get into full swing for the Christmas holidays!
Last week we launched the newest beer from WEST, Dunkelweizen, a 5.2% dark wheat beer. Far more than just a Christmas beer, Dunkelweizen brings beer enthusiasts the same much-loved flavours as the WEST Hefeweizen with a darker, richer twist.
Dunkelweizen is brewed with a complex grain bill, adding another dimension of flavour to the typical notes of banana, clove, and fruit predominant in a wheat beer. The beer is full of sweet tastes like candied citrus peel and fruit syrup, enhanced by aromas of toast, roasted nuts, and even a faint hint of the spices used in mulled wine. Much maltier than the WEST Hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen is left unfiltered and is cloudy brown in colour.
We also launched our new Christmas menu, which is available every day throughout the month of December. The menu offers a range of Scottish-German dishes, using seasonal produce as much as possible. Highlights include the ‘Crab and prawn cocktail with avocado and Marie Rose’, ‘Corn fed chicken, fondant potatoes and creamed cabbage with chestnuts and apricot thyme jus’ and of course the unusual ‘Christmas pudding ice cream’!
It’s not too late to book in for a private holiday meal this month – please call us on 0141 332 0540 with any enquiries so we may check availability.
While you’re in, why not pick up some gifts for your WEST beer-loving pals? All items from the WEST online shop may also be purchased directly from us at the bar to avoid shipping costs.
We wish all of you the best as the turbulent year of 2016 comes to an end, and a very Merry Christmas!
