About Aurochs Brewing Co
We set out to honor the spirit of the Aurochs, a legendary beast that roamed the wild countryside thousands of years ago. We brew with ancient, untamed grains to impart complex flavors shaped by generations of growth in the wilderness. We develop our own unique, original recipes that hark back to a time when man and beast refused to give up a life of freedom. Our commitment to quality ensures that every beer is naturally gluten-free and brewed from only the purest ingredients. We give our consumers the right to choose something wild and untamed because, much like the Aurochs, our beers are Never Domesticated. Always Free.
About the Aurochs
Standing over 6 feet tall and sporting razor-sharp horns large enough to hold a yard of ale, the Aurochs lived in an uneasy truce with primitive man. Humans hunted the Aurochs for food and clothing, and in return the animal would remain free to roam its natural habitat.
This balance collapsed with the advent of modern agriculture. Orderly rows of wheat, barley, and rye overran the once wild landscape, while stone walls enveloped herds of recently domesticated animals. Unlike its fellow creatures, the Aurochs refused to be tamed and instead chose a slow extinction as it freely roamed what little countryside it had left.
About The Team
At Aurochs, when it comes to enjoying a beer we believe you shouldn’t have to choose between great tasting and gluten free.
Ryan was diagnosed with gluten intolerance in his mid-twenties and had loved and lost when it came to craft beer. Now medically required to avoid all gluten, enjoying a dynamic, flavorful beer was no longer an option.
Looking for alternative options, Ryan turned to his long time friend Doug to help navigate the gluten free landscape. Doug had been diagnosed with Celiac disease at the age of 5 and been following a gluten free diet for over 20 years.
After an exhaustive, and ultimately unfruitful search, we resolved to create our own great-tasting beer made with naturally gluten-free ingredients.
Starting small, in Ryan’s small apartment we began malting, researching, innovating and learning. We’ve created a unique brewing process using ancient, naturally gluten-free grains that allows us to make great tasting, gluten-free beer. After four years, hundreds of brews and thousands of learning experiences we are ready to open our doors and share our beer with the world.
About the Brewery
Our brewery is located on the Ohio River just outside downtown Pittsburgh, an area once home to ore refineries, great steel railroads, and markets that kept the city running with endless shipments of meat, produce, and beer. We can think of no better place to set our roots than our hometown of Pittsburgh. A city city for beer – forged by mountains and rivers, hardened by industry, and ultimately cast in the form of unbridled optimism and resiliency.
We are passionate about brewing naturally gluten free beer. Beer brewed in a dedicated gluten free facility without ingredients that contain wheat, barley, or rye to guarantee our beers are all naturally gluten-free.
Visit our brewery and tap room in Emsworth, PA (Pittsburgh) located on Ohio River Blvd. at 8321 Ohio River Blvd – turn onto Williston Ave to enter our parking lot.
All of our brews are 100% naturally gluten-free. We test each of our ingredients to ensure our beer is pure and safe. And, of course, we drink it to make sure we like it. For more information about gluten-free or drinking beer, check out our blog.
