New craft beer pub for Partick

Colin Beattie completed the purchase of The Partick Tavern in Partick recently. The pub, formerly owned by the the Orchid Pub Company is already undergoing a refurbishment, and will be known as the Partick Brewing Company. Says Colin, “I don’t want to compete with any of my other establishments which are whisky orientated. Here we will offer a good craft beer selection and it will be more of a gastro pub. The most important feature is of course our clientele. I am hoping to extend Byres Road to The Lismore now that there is not a pool palace in the middle. All the pool tables have been removed. There’s also 1,100 students moving into this area later on in the year, so we are well placed to serve the local market too.”

When the refurbishment is completed the The Partick Brewing Company, which has a capacity of 400, will have a central bar with the right hand side of the pub being the hub for live music. Says Colin, “It will be more of the traditional variety.”
