Whether or not you have a gluten intolerance, Aurochs Brewing is a gem in Pittsburgh when it comes to beer. As someone who’s drank there since the beginning, the changes and elevation in the brews there have been amazing the past several years. This year, we need to raise a glass because this brewery is killing it in the Gluten-Free category!
They’ve recently been awarded two medals at the 2021 U.S. Open Beer Championship! This year, they took home the gold for Gluten-Free IPA and the silver for Gluten-Free Beer! What an accomplishment!
If you love IPAs and haven’t tried the Aurochs Hazy IPA, change that as soon as possible. Loaded with tropical flavors and aroma, this beer is soft with a pillowy mouthfeel. Brewed with quinoa instead of wheat, this beer is hopped with Crosby’s NZ Kiwi Blend, Idaho Gem and Mosaic hops. Juicy and hazy, this brew is a literal gold medal winner! Try it out ASAP the next time it’s in stock!
Next up, the Amber Ale took the silver in the gluten free beer category. I’ve always been partial to this brew because it’s so simple and classic. Malty, tasty and perfect for kicking back with during a Steelers game, this 4.5% brew is the perfect sports brew. Hints of caramel and toast make this ale smooth, malty and perfect, in my opinion.
If you haven’t tried both of these gluten-free beers, make it a point to try these medal winners this week! Regardless or whether or not you have a gluten intolerance, Aurochs is creating some great beers! Have you tried either of these beers before? Let me know in the comments below!
