Local pubs have been closing but others have also been opening, suggesting a healthy industry which is an important part of the city's night-time economy.
The pubs in the report are described as local pubs, the friendly pub that is within walking distance of most of its customers that has a regular clientele known to each other.
These pubs are part of the city and, even as Glasgow attempts to reduce its overall alcohol consumption and with it the harm that excessive drinking does, there will always be a place for local pubs.
In some areas there are concerns that there are too many pubs, especially in areas with social problems and higher levels of deprivation.
However, the well-run local is a place where people can drink in moderation and it is a counter balance to large-scale city centre pubs which are often blamed for binge drinking.
The pub trade has suffered as a result of tighter family budgets when all but essential spending is cut back.
However, the local pub has long been part of the character of Glasgow and hopefully they will thrive in the future.
