About The Hippo Taproom

Independent craft beer on Sauchiehall Street

A funky basement bar on Sauchiehall Street, The Hippo Taproom is an independent craft beer bar. With exposed brick walls and a soundtrack of alternative, indie, blues and soul – plus the occasional live act – it is a cool and casual hangout with an underground vibe in all senses of the word. The bar has ten keg lines, three cask lines and 70 plus bottles and cans of beers from all over the world along with a great selection of artisan wines and spirits. The staff are more than happy to recommend beers to match with your food.

Freshly prepared bar food with Mexican flavours

Beer is king at The Hippo Taproom and the food menu is designed to complement their extensive range of brews. Small appetites may want to snack on honey and chipotle glazed chicken wings, grilled chorizo tostados or loaded nachos. Hungrier visitors may wish to explore the more substantial main courses, many of which have a distinct Mexican flavour. The build your burritos are popular while the Hippo Burger and the pulled pork bun, especially with chorizo salt fries on the side, get the thumbs up from the staff.
