Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, St. Louis

Urban Chestnut Brewing is taking St. Louis by storm. Rated one of the newest breweries to watch by RateBeer, Urban Chestnut is bringing back older European styles of beer, like the Hopfen (a Bavarian IPA) or the Single Hop Trafalgar (an English Pale Ale), with new life as artisanal American beers. The brewery is expanding to a bigger brewery in The Grove and the new location will have a capacity of 15,000 barrels, a huge leap from the 1,800 barrels brewed in its first year of operation, 2011. That will make it the second-largest brewery in the city. We’re looking forward to seeing more Urban Chestnut beers in distribution.
