As part of the programme for the year, the Meeting of 8 March was a social evening with a group of 9 members from the Odenwald Association visiting West Brewery in Glasgow to experience a German evening in Scotland! The Brewery is housed in the iconic Templeton Building which was previously a world famous carpet factory. The flamboyant design is said to have been based on the Doge's Palace in Venice.
The Brewery serves German cuisine alongside several beers brewed in the German tradition and made strictly following the German Purity Law. Their WEST beers, from Hefeweizen, a wheat beer, to red and amber beers, provided the ideal accompaniment to a variety of dishes including, Jagerschnitzel, Spätzle and a variety of popular Wurst. It was a most enjoyable night with the company declaring it was "Viel Spaß".
