We are a family

The brewery is truly a family business. Dave and Desiree Knott, the owners, take care of the day to day operations of the brewery and the homebrew store. You know, the boring stuff. Paying bills, maintaining the website, doing a horrid job of marketing, etc… (Dave and Desiree get to brew when the kids aren’t around, like when they had Olivia, Dave and Desiree’s third grandchild, or when the kids went to California for a much needed vacation.)

Their daughter, Amanda Schley, is the workhorse, the glue that keeps things working. She runs the retail side of the business, is a key player in the recipe formulation, and makes sure that beers are flowing. She even gets to brew a batch or two between all that. On top of all that, she also makes the wine and mead for the winery side of the business.

Tim, the main brewer, is our son-in-law. He is our manual labor, expert on water adjustments, a great brewer, and a lover of New England IPA’s. (We have to remind him there are others styles out there…)

We also have our extended family of helpers and fellow beers lovers that complete the picture of our amazing company. We couldn’t do it with out them.

The taproom inside High Gravity is lovingly named Pippin’s Taproom, after our dear African Grey parrot who kept us company for many years. Pippin’s Taproom is a great place to get together with friends, and to bring the kids. Events in the taproom includes trivia, games, karaoke, and more.

Come see us for South Tulsa’s most unique craft beer experience.
