Chieftain o' the brewin’ Race: Burns Night at Tennent’s Brewery

Celebrate the Bard at Scotland’s oldest brewery

The Tennent’s Visitor Centre will prove to be well versed in more than just beer this weekend, as it opens its doors for a special Burns Night edition of its popular brewery tour.

On the 24th January and 25th of January, guests will be able to raise a poetic pint of Tennent’s Lager to Scotland’s national poet, following a tour of the iconic brewery.

The tour will finish in the Tennent’s Training Academy where all will be treated to a dram and a taster of locally sourced haggis, neeps and tatties.

A Whisky Ambassador will be on hand during the whisky tasting, which will also include an opportunity to sample Tennent’s acclaimed beer aged with Whisky Oak

Said Visitor Centre Manager Ross Pollock, “We were brewing on this very spot when Burns was writing his best loved works, and it’s only fitting for us to host a celebration of our nation’s greatest poet. He’s known for enjoying a whisky, so naturally we’ll serve a dram in addition to our usual tour, which is a fun and fascinating look behind the scenes of Scotland’s favourite pint. ”

Events will be held at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm on the 24th of January, and 6pm and 8pm on the 25th. Tickets cost £15 each and must be purchased in advance online at http://tennentstrainingacademy.co.uk/leisure.
