about aurochs

Visit our tasting room to enjoy a pint, a flight or a taster of one of the 10 gluten free offerings on draft.  We brew over 35 different gluten free craft beers here at the brewery and rotate them through on draft.  We brew craft beer that can compete with barley brewed beers based on taste.  Everyone is able to enjoy our beers, so whether you are medically required to follow a gluten free diet or you just enjoy flavorful brews, we would love to host you.

At Aurochs, when it comes to enjoying a beer we believe you shouldnât 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.

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 â 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.
