Guns & Oil Brewery was founded in 2013 and is based out of Austin, Texas. At first, their super-secret recipes were solely contract-brewed by Sleeping Giant out of Denver and Wild Acre Brewing in Fort Worth. However, a mere year after the company's inception, a prime location in downtown Austin was located — just three blocks from the Austin Convention Center.
Late 2017, more exciting news about Guns & Oil hit the streets. Payette Brewing Company, two miles outside of Boise, Idaho, made the decision to move. This left a fully functional brewery up for grabs, and Guns & Oil snapped at the opportunity. Aside from needing to add a canning line, they had everything they needed to produce an additional five thousand barrels a year.
Guns & Oil is known for their accessible but hard-hitting line of no-frills beer. Their flagship offering, a pre-Prohibition American lager, is featured on Drizly. You can also score their tasty Strawberry Lemon lager, which uses pure genuine fruit puree to add a light and flavorful dimension to a classic brew.
