Don't forget that discounted early bird ticket sales end this weekend for our GF Bites and Brews Tour. We are excited to partner with other local businesses to highlight some of the best gluten free food and drink options in the city!
We'll take you off the wheaten path on this tour to explore local gluten-free food and beverages. Drinking stops include Aurochs Brewing Company, Apis Mead & Winery, and Arsenal Cider House. Tastings include gluten-free fare from Onion Maiden, Baked True North, The Colombian Spot, and more.
This tour was designed specifically for guests on a gluten-free diet, but open to all those who love great food, great drinks and great company.
The tour includes round-trip shuttle transportation departing from Soergel Orchards in Wexford, tour guide, and food and beverage samples (for most this will be enough food for a meal).
Please note that not all of the stops take place at dedicated gluten-free facilities.
Aurochs founders Doug and Ryan talked with longtime friend Greg Hough on The Fermented Beverage Podcast last fall. Check out the episode to learn more about how Aurochs got started and our commitment to gluten free beer (don't worry, none of our employees are eating lunch outside right now).

For those who don't receive our newsletter, we wanted to share this update here:
Thank you for making 2017 such an exciting year at Aurochs Brewing Company. The past year we have brewed many new styles of beer, released 12oz and 22oz bottles, grown our team and added to a still growing list of bars, restaurants and retail locations where you can purchase Aurochs beer. We have also had an amazing year connecting with our customers at events, out in the community and in our tasting room. We appreciate all of the love and support from you, our bold beer drinkers, as we try to change the way the world experiences gluten free beer.
With your continued support, 2018 is setting up to be even more exciting - highlighted by more growth and some necessary changes. We are doubling our production of fresh, delicious, naturally gluten free beer and focusing our efforts on expanding our distribution to bring our beer to you, wherever you may be.
To accommodate our future growth, starting in January, our tasting room will be open for take out sales only. We will no longer be selling pints for on-site consumption. Our 2018 tasting room hours will be Thursdays and Fridays from 4 PM to 8 PM and Saturdays from noon to 6 PM.
This move is intended to free up the space we need for brewing and bottling bigger batches and allow our staff to focus on bringing Aurochs to new accounts and new markets. Our first new tank, a 14 barrel fermenter, will arrive the first week in January and we have to get busy brewing! Our Pittsburgh customers can now find Aurochs in over 75 bars and bottle shops and we are excited to bring great tasting gluten free beer to more cities in 2018. Don’t worry, we still have lots of fun things in store for our Pittsburgh customers, we’ll be announcing new brewery tours, beer dinners and happy hour events in the new year.
Looking to connect with family and friends over local craft beer this holiday season? Our tasting room will be open this weekend on Thursday from 4 to 10 PM and Friday and Saturday from noon to 10 PM. We'll be serving beer floats and selling t-shirts, glassware, stickers and gift cards for any last minute shoppers.
You can also find Aurochs at these awesome craft breweries: Mindful Brewing Company, Levity Brewing Co, Rivertowne North Shore and Rusty Gold Brewing.
We have a few new locations where you can find Aurochs: 99 Bottles in Carnegie, Bier's Pub in Pittsburgh's North Side, Hutch's Tap Room in Dunbar, and Brewski's Beer Distributor 724-265-1275 in Russellton. Visit www.aurochsbrewing.com/brews and click FIND OUR BEERS to view an interactive map of all of the locations that carry Aurochs.
Tonight is Pierogie Night! If you pre-ordered ready-to-eat pierogies you can arrive anytime between 4:30 PM and 8:00 PM. Frozen pierogies can be picked up anytime this weekend during our tasting room hours. We ordered about 30 extra dozen ready-to-eat and 30 extra dozen frozen pierogies that will be available starting at 4:30 PM tonight.
We have a great week ahead. Today we are bottling fresh Blonde Ale, tomorrow we'll be making our first round of deliveries in Philadelphia, Thursday is our GF Pierogie Night and Friday we are hosting Buzz Worthy Pub Trivia in the tasting room.
New places to find Aurochs: The BeerHive, The Smiling Moose, Local Bar + Kitchen, Beer Lime & Sunshine, Cases Beer Distributing, Myrna's Brew'ry Outlet, Dive Bar & Grille (Wexford), Sir Pizza- Ross Township, JR's Beer Warehouse, Blackhawk Beer, Casehandlers Distributors, Riley's Pour House, The Oven Pizza Co. | Wexford and Saloon of Mt.

"Aurochs and less than ten other gluten-free breweries in the entire country are dedicated to changing the taste of gluten-free beer. I'm not even going to say “gluten-free” in this column anymore because it's simply craft beer." Mark Brewer
Today Aurochs was featured in Gluten Free Philly! We are so excited to be making our way across the state. Our first Philadelphia location will be Farmer's Keep in Center City. We'll let you know when our beer is on the shelves and available for purchase. If you are gluten free and live in the Philadelphia area, please send us your bar and bottle shop suggestions. We will be adding additional locations soon. Cheers!
A new spot to find Aurochs bottles!
