Kained Holdings, the company behind popular restaurants The Finnieston and Porter & Rye; the Bar & Burger chain Lebowskis, Sports and Craft Beer Bar The Crafty Pig and their highly anticipated new venture The Drugstore Social, are set to launch their very own beer.

The new beer will be a 4.2% Pilsner called Apache, brewed for Kained by Glasgow’s own beer specialists West Brewery.

Apache will be launched on the weekend of 9-11th September and will be exclusively available in Kained Venues.

Petra Wetzel, owner of West Brewery, said: “We proudly brew Apache Lager for our friends at Kained Holdings. Given we are called WEST, love all things Wild West and have a sense of adventure, we think the name they have chosen for our bespoke 4.2% lager beautifully fits by name and concept into everything we do here on Glasgow Green. My granddad George would approve. He used to read stories about Apaches to me when I was little.”

James Kemp, marketing manager at Kained, said: “This is an exciting development for Kained as we are now able to exert our own influence on the product we deliver to our customers. The process of agreeing on the specifications of the beer, trying different brews and agreeing on the final product was lengthy and challenging, but just as intriguing and certainly rewarding.

“The exclusivity of this Pilsner only being available in our own Venues also means we are finally able to really give back to our loyal customers in an excitingly tangible way.”

The logo for the beer has also been produced locally by tattoo artists from Custom Inc in Finnieston (which is situated close to Lebowski’s West and Porter & Rye restaurant in Argyle Street) and Kained say they have delivered a rebellious and eye-catching look that they believe will firmly set their new beer apart from the crowd.

The team have also revealed plans to tie in the production of the beer with their restaurant Porter & Rye, whose Farm to Fork project sees cattle purchased and raised at Gaindykehead Farm where Kained source all of their meat from, and will see the cattle fed on the grain used in the making of Apache.

Kained are hoping the process will introduce completely unique flavours into their beef through this process.
