Aurochs Brewing

Food & Beverage

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.
