Riverfront Times' Description

We can see it now: St. Louis, Gateway to the Western Beer. Independent microbreweries are cropping up as fast as you can fall in love with their weisses and biers and lagers and pilsners, and Urban Chestnut Brewing Company is the latest to capitalize on our collective obsession. The antiseptic tap room and adjoining brewhouse almost look like a car dealership from the outside, but inside it's all warm fuzzies and cold suds in pristine pint glasses. A chalkboard above the bar gives the stats for the ten or so beers on tap, and also poses the question: "Revolution or Reverence?" Will the upstarts beat the InBev pros at their own game? Will Urban Chestnut flourish or founder? Judging by the strength of their first few batches of European-style beers, these guys aren't nuts. Gotta try: the blonde Zucker Weisse, a sour wheat beer that becomes transcendent with a splash of woodruff (a green syrup reminiscent of vanilla and chamomile) or raspberry syrup.

Tips from foursquare

  • Go! Magazine on 01/27/11

    Half Crown is the new Urban Chestnut's idea of a "session IPA," meaning it has the dry-hopped aroma and flavor of an American India pale ale but with a restrained alcohol content. (Evan S. Benn)

    God damn hipster central.

  • Go! Magazine on 06/07/11

    Try Urban Chestnut Urbanator. This maibock-doppelbock hybrid is a delight to see, smell and taste. And the flavor cleanly hides the brew's 8% ABV, with a slight hop bite at the end. (Evan S. Benn)
