Beer fans, who are also new students, can enjoy a day of freebies from the brand.

Posting on their social media, the team said: "Hey, freshers of Glasgow! A wee reminder that you can tour our big beautiful brewery tomorrow and enjoy two delicious pints of Scotland's favourite lager - and it'll cost you absolutely NOTHING.

Well, apart from a couple of hours in the library, of course...

To claim your free tour and beers, all you need to do is pop into the Tennent's visitor centre or call 0141 202 7145 and ask about Tennent's Freshers' Day.

Visitors must be over 18 and bring valid student ID, and places are limited and first come, first served.

Many replies to the promotion asked about freebies for non-students, to which Tennent's replied: "watch this space."

Last October Tennent's revealed their new visitor centre, which tells the story of the brand and cost around £1million.

At the time of opening, Tennent’s bosses said the visitor centre at its Wellpark Brewery will tell the history of brewing in the area from the 1500s through to the present day, including how founder Hugh Tennent first brewed the lager that bears his name in 1885.

Alan McGarrie, group brand director for Tennent’s Lager, said: “The Tennent’s story is at the heart of Glasgow’s history and with this significant company investment at our home at Wellpark we are bringing the story to life – bigger and better than we ever have before, as we showcase the brewery, the beer and the brand.

“With an ever-growing interest in the provenance story of beer, and subsequent rise in beer tourism, we want to give locals and visitors to the city a behind-the-scenes look at not just a working brewery but the history of Scotland’s number one beer and the cultural icon that is Tennent’s Lager.”
