Hippo Beers, named after St Augustine of Hippo Regius– the patron saint of brewers, started life as Glasgow’s first speciality beer shop opening in the heart of the West End in November 2012. We boast an outstanding range of craft beers, real ales and world beers, as well as fine wines and specialist ciders. The company was founded by Derek Hoy and Alec Knox - two old mates from uni and of course, passionate beer lovers. At the time the craft beer scene in Glasgow was in it's infancy but has since grown considerably, we're proud to have been at the start of it and that we continue to be a part of such an exciting industry.
