About Urban Chestnut Brewing Company

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company is an unconventional-minded yet tradition-oriented brewer of craft beer with authentic heritage and proven quality. They like to call their unique brewing philosophy Beer Divergency—a 'new world meets old world' brewing approach wherein UCBC provides the beer drinker a divergent path of exploration into the worlds of: modern, American craft beers (our Revolution Series), the traditions of classic European brewing (their Reverence Series), and small batches of Bavarian brewed/imported biers (their Hallertauer Series).

As they endeavor to create high-quality offerings of lagers & ales, they also strive to be respected for their actions as a business member of the St. Louis community. They like to call these actions "Urban Efforts" – intentional measures undertaken by Urban Chestnut to help them to be a better global and local citizen. Their efforts span from the sustainability methods they employ during their brewing process to a concerted emphasis in aiding local not-for-profit organizations to reach their fund-raising goals.
