Encore raises the bar at World Pipe Band Championships

31/08/2015
Over 16,000 pints of lager were served at the World Pipe Band Championships at Glasgow Green.
 
The World Pipe Band Championships took over Glasgow Green this month with 230 bands from 16 countries competing in the annual event. 
 
We’re not one for blowing our own… bagpipe, but fortunately for the bands and the thousands of visitors, our Encore staff were on hand offering hospitality and bar services.
 
Around 16,000 pints of lager were served over the two days of competition to both competitors and the fans who flocked to the Green.
 
The 20-strong team ensured the beer was flowing throughout the competition which saw Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia become the first Scottish band crowned world champions in a decade.
 
Encore also offered a VIP hospitality area which served 500 guests over the two days of competition.
 
Well done to all the team!
