Glasgow brewer to give away 10,000 free guitars at TRNSMT

WEST, Glasgow's favourite independent brewery, is giving away 10,000 free guitars this weekend (July 6'“8) to coincide with the TRNSMT music festival at Glasgow Green.

The brewer is to dot a number of guitar stands around the main thoroughfares leading to the music festival and inviting budding guitar heroes to take their pick of their favoured axe: the only catch is that we’re talking air guitars...

WEST founder, Bavarian-born Petra Wetzel, said: “TRNSMT takes place on the doorstep of our award-winning brewery on Glasgow Green. So we thought it would be a nice gesture, as a brewer that prides itself on having a Glaswegian heart and a German head, to offer festival-goers an incredible 10,000 free guitars.

“After all, it was the most famous Glaswegian of them all – The Big Yin, Billy Connolly – who once famously sang, ‘Hey Jimmy, gonna gi’ us Ten Guitars?’ Well we’re going 9,990 better and giving away 10,000 guitars!”

“Festival-goers can enter our Guitar Challenge by posting a photo or video of themselves or their best friends performing their best air guitar poses to Westbeer Facebook or Westbeer Twitter and the winning entry will win a real Stratocaster guitar as well as a tour of our award-winning brewery together with merchandise and our WEST gift pack – so get practicing your favourite air guitar riffs now!”
