Formerly a bank, 92 West George street in Glasgow is now host to a new beer drinking experience; The brewpub.
Serving beer instead of bank notes, Schilling Brewery serve a more intimate drinking experience via their bar brewed beverages. London based architecture firm Jestico&Whiles converted the 1920’s grade B listed building exposing the grandeur of the marble pillars and full height art deco windows within. Large polished copper vessels are seen directly above the Italian marble bar, showcasing the objective in hand; let people discover and appreciate beer, straight from the source. In the basement, en route to the toilets are the the solid metal vault doors, a stylish reminder of the past nature of the former bank. Together, the company has created a contemporary and spacious experience for lovers of beer, the brewing process and more extensively, architecture.
The menu offers a range of beers, four of which are currently brewed in-house under the Shilling name, served by the knowledgeable bar staff. Alternatively you can opt for their tasting selection as a means of sampling their in-house beers presented in the form ‘beer flight’ ; four small 1/3 pint glasses. For food there is a neatly positioned kitchen to the right of the bar in where which is a fully bespoke, purpose built pizza oven.
For events, Schilling also offer function reservations which enable front row viewing of their production vats inside their 8 people brewing room. The room is ideal for small meetings and presentations, even for further brewing insight from one of the in-house team.

NATIVE is a blog series intended to showcase select brands who implement product manufacture here in the UK. Admittedly, not all aspects of every product can be made here, however we are most interested in those that can.
UK production has changed dramatically over the decades. Like every industry, embracing change is vital, not just to survive but to thrive in conjunction with social, economic and technological advancement.
Recognition of businesses, old and new, that implement outright or even partial local production is something we are genuinely passionate about. As designers, it is our belief that people should know more about how, why and where great products are made in the UK.
NATIVE is our way of sharing this information.
