Bricks and beer

bricksandbeerTucked away in the corner of Glasgow Green is the former Templeton’s Carpet factory.  It is a most fabulous sight to behold, as it is said to be an imitation of Doge’s Palace in Venice, all created in technicolour brick.  Now a new form of weaving takes place in terms of social fabric rather than the patented carpets; a german beer micro-brewery sits in the ground floor of this property producing several “house beers” such as Dunkel and even one named after Glasgow’s very own Saint Mungo.  Outside, the building glistens in the sun whilst inside flickering candles and dark wooden benches create atmospheric wining and dining, a happy way to while away an hour or so.
