About Us

Handcrafted gluten-reduced beers in a warm inclusive atmosphere.

Our goal is to make exceptional craft beer while also facilitating connectedness (community) for each person we serve inside and outside our walls. This is accomplished through a comfortable, fun, and family-friendly atmosphere with an emphasis on excellence and professionalism in all we do.

John (owner) started getting into craft beer post college but then soon discovered he has gluten intolerance. Sadly at the time the options for gluten free or gluten reduced beers was rather slim and the flavors were disappointing. A friend introduced John to homebrewing and he got really into it. After a few years John would frequently mention how fun it would be to open a brewery and maybe when I'm' like 50 I'll do it. Ellen (wife/owner) said why not now. Within 3 months there was a business plan, a partner, and 85% of investment raised. A year later we opened our doors and completely sold out of our first batches. Since then Oil Horse has grown from opening once a month to 5 days a week, offering 3 beers to 15 rotating taps, and from friends volunteering to having staff.

No one belongs here more than you.
