Wellpark Brewery is a brewery situated in Duke Street in the East End of Glasgow, Scotland. It was founded in 1740 by Hugh and Robert Tennent. The company produces Tennent's Lager, Scotland's market leading brand of pale lager since it was first produced in 1885. Hugh Tennent's sons, John and Robert, continued the family business, trading as J&R Tennent from 1769.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.
Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
1968 to 1972
