The Knops Beer Company was started, and is run by, Robert Knops. Robert is one of the many UK brewers who came from the well known Brewing and Distilling degree course at Edinburgh’s Heriot Watt University. After several years working in production, most notably with Whitbread and Loanhead’s Stewart Brewing, the desire to branch out alone became overwhelming and the Knops Beer Company was born. Due to financial restrictions Robert does not have a brewery of his own, he uses Traditional Scottish Ales’ equipment in Bridge of Allan.
