Closing June 1st for Construction

We have started installation of our new brewing system. The equipment will increase our weekly production capacity by a multiple of 20. We are eager to get up and running again and in order to do so we must shut down our current operation to make room for the new. We are closing our tasting room on June 1st to begin the construction and building process.

Our Story

We are two local Pittsburgh guys, living medically gluten-free lives, and we are changing the way the world experiences gluten-free beer.

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

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.

Ryan Emily Doug Amy

About The Team

We’re two Pittsburgh friends, living medically gluten-free lives, and we’re changing the way the world experiences gluten-free beer.   Aurochs co-founder Doug Foster avoided gluten his entire life after he was diagnosed with Celiac disease at the age of five. When his childhood friend Ryan Bove developed gluten intolerance twenty years later, the two set out to create a great-tasting beer made with naturally gluten-free ingredients. If you were like us, longing for the good old days of enjoying a well-crafted beer or longing for the day to drink one, the wait is over.  We started small, in founder Ryan’s small apartment malting, 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.

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 testament to the spirit of the Aurochs than Pittsburgh, a city forged by mountains and rivers, hardened by hardship, and ultimately cast in the form of unbridled optimism and resiliency. We share the joy of conquering a wild, uncertain challenge and honoring our commitment to quality and excellence. Much like the careful hunters of the Aurochs, we take no risks and begin with ingredients that contain absolutely no wheat, barley, or rye to guarantee our beers are all naturally gluten-free.

Our Brews

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.
