Craft beer and real ale has been booming in recent years and our love for these distinct, unique products led us to setting up Hippo Beers.
Our starting point was our bottle shop on Queen Margaret Drive in Glasgow's west end. We launched as Glasgow's first speciality beer shop in 2012 selling a range of over 350 beers from Scottish microbreweries and others from across the UK as well as beers from America, Belgium, Germany, Scandinavia and a range of other countries.
We progressed to offer all the great beers we have available in our shop online via our website where you can get beers delivered to your door anywhere in the UK.
In 2016 we expanded to open a craft beer bar in a funky basement at 323 Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow's city centre. With 10 keg lines, 3 cask lines and around 70 bottles and cans in the fridges all on rotation we offer one of the best beer line-ups in the city. The bar also has a great range of spirits, wines and soft drinks as well as serving a Mexican themed menu that will make your mouth water!
