GLASGOW, Scotland, August 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Craft beer trailblazers Hippo Beers launched their latest venture in July with the opening of new beer bar 'The Hippo Taproom' at 323 Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow city centre.

Located in the former 'Cocktail & Burger' premises the funky basement bar now boasts one of the best beer selections in the city with 10 keg lines, 3 cask lines and approximately 70 bottles and cans all dedicated to craft beer. Only the house lager and cider are fixed with everything else on rotation meaning more choice for customers especially given the bar has no brewery ties.

Bar Manager Ross McLelland has been recruited from respected Merchant City bar Blackfriars to deliver customers beers in top quality condition.

The beers are complemented by a range of artisan spirits, wine and soft drinks along with a Mexican inspired menu.

Hippo Beers Director Alec Knox said, "We're really excited to have finally opened this bar - it has been a culmination of a lot of time and hard work.

"We've already got some plans for events that we're going to put on over the next few months ranging from tap takeovers with breweries to music nights.

"Some of what we have inherited we're looking to change to make the place a bit more family friendly and a place people want to hang out in if they are studying, working or just relaxing. At our core though we're a beer bar and always will be."
