I’m not sure if this qualifies as product placement but it certainly is an endorsement. I have been waiting some time for this news but Aurochs Brewing Company is officially open!
Aurochs, for those unaware, is a new ALL gluten free brewing company in Pittsburgh. These guys both are celiac so they understand what it means to be gluten free and they both have a passion for good beer. I had a chance to sample some of their product a while back and it was great.
Here is their official announcement:
As of 4:00pm today, August 7th, Aurochs Brewing Co. will be officially open for business!
Moving forward, our hours of operations will be Thursdays & Fridays 4:00-8:00pm and Saturdays Noon-6:00pm. We will host tastings and growler salesduring that time.
We are located at 8321 Ohio River Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15202 (turn on to Walliston Ave to enter our parking lot).
Our significantly abridged plan from now through the end of the year includes a slight increase in capacity over the next few months, which will allow us to sell growlers from the brewery, a secondary location and service a handful of customers who will work with us to maintain the quality and purity (or gluten-freeness) of our beer.
In 2015 we will aim to make a significant jump in production capacity.
We want to be transparent with our friends, neighbors and customers in regards to growler sales and tastings as we deal with the enviable problem of high demand exceeding our limited supply.
As we grow as a brewery, so too will our capacity, but that will take time, money and resources. We hope to that you will continue with your support, enthusiasm and patience as we experience these growing pains.
Please know that we put our beer and our customers first every day.
Also, know that if you have ideas and suggestions or want to share criticism with us about our product or the way we run operate the brewery, we are always accessible (ok, sometimes it might take us a week or two, or six, to respond but we are always listening).
So if you are in the Western PA area or passing through…check them out!
