Buck Wild Brewing
Buck Wild Brewing stands as a trailblazer in the realm of craft beer, carving its own path as California's original 100% gluten-free craft brewery. Located within the charming confines of a 1947 poultry warehouse in Oakland's Historic Warehouse District, Buck Wild Brewing has redefined the boundaries of beer-making by crafting a range of exceptional gluten-free brews. The brewery's commitment to crafting top-notch beers without compromising on flavor or quality has earned it a reputation as a true innovator in the industry.
The story of Buck Wild Brewing is deeply rooted in a personal journey. The owner's adoption of a gluten-free lifestyle back in 2006, combined with his fervent passion for outdoor adventures, fueled his desire to recreate the camaraderie that often accompanies sharing a cold beer with friends. This desire inspired him to dive into the world of homebrewing, specifically focusing on crafting gluten-free beer that stands on par with its gluten-containing counterparts. Not content with mere replication, the owner embarked on a journey to master the art of malting and roasting gluten-free grains, thereby infusing his beers with the distinctive flavors, colors, and textures reminiscent of traditional barley-based craft beers. This dedication and commitment to his craft culminated in the opening of Buck Wild Brewing's brewery and taproom to the public in November 2020, a space where the community can gather and savor a taste of adventure in every sip.
